Re: working on 215 Vlds 300 ultra

You stated "next 5 83.5 grains jumping .30 then .50 then .70. " So are you saying that the group of 5 had 3 seating depths?

These are at 100 yards?

Does the rifle have a brake?

I would back off to shooting 3 shot groups, and allow complete barrel cool between.

Tell us about your rifle, bbl length, twist, etc. I could never get H1000 to shoot well in my 300. RL 25 lit by Fed 210s run 3100 fps. Keep it up, there is a node you will hit.

Each 5 loads had the same seating depth .20 off the lands .

I will start loading 3 shot groups

Yes they are 100 yard groups
Yes the rifle has a brake

83.8 had the best grouping again it was cold here in texas this morning , 40 with a north wind blowing

86 grain is max book load , all these loads where 2.2 grains below book max

These loads where a a surprising low recoil loads to shoot .

After shooting 180 Barnes 3200 fps

And I cleaned my gun till no more blue came out ,brushed it then let it sit brushed it and let it sit again took 5 hours of soaking and pushing patches thru it .

Thanks for the info. Try 0, .005 and .010 into the lands. From my testing, 30s seem to like to be closer to the lands.
