Who\'s loading a Warbird

I haven't started loading for mine yet but I wonder if anyone is.
What are you using?
I plan to use a 200 Nosler partition for starters, RL25, H1000 or ????

Re: Who\'s loading a Warbird

I had one some time back in a Lilja barreled rig , I abandoned the project due to the cost of the brass and the false velocities stated by Lazz.
But I think that I got best results from R-25 and IMR-7828

Best of luck with yours

Re: Who\'s loading a Warbird

Thanks guys.
I don't come here real often, I've got a lot on my plate right now but
for those who don't remember me or were not here when I started this project, this rifle is a
Ruger# 1 stainless that I spent a lot of money on.
Of all the things that have been done to it, the most important is the fact that it has a 28 1/2 inch
fluted stainless match barrel. PACNOR I believe. I can't believe I have forgotten what all I did to the rifle.
I've had the rifle now probably 3 years and have not fired it.
The dies, as far as I know can only be obtained from Lazeroni, at least if I want RCBS.
They are $200 for a full length set.
Brass is very expensive.
Some times I wish I had picked one of the other "super' 30's
I'm hoping to get goin on it this spring tho'.
Sure am itching to see what it will do.
I asked about powders because I have heard of some pressure issues with RL25.

Re: Who\'s loading a Warbird

You can get data from Lazzeroni's web site. You should defintely start low and work up. The MAX load pressures are too high in my rifle. And in a TRGS that I loaded for they would have been plain scary. But I do hit the 3500 mark with a 180 Accubond using RL25 (27"). That TGRS (26") burning 7828 and pushing 180 Accubonds, would do 3425 (IIRC) and did it at 4 grains below MAX.

Re: Who\'s loading a Warbird

I think the dies are around $109 and you can order the brass from midway for $40 per box.

Most of the Pressures you here of are people trying to get the stated velocities from 25 or 26 barels.

I did not have any problems getting the stated velocities out of my rifle until receantly. My throat is gone, I need a new barrel.

I shot the 130 grain barns 4014 fps. That is smokin out of a 30 cal.

Good luck
