Re: Working up load

Yeah I've always used brass, your not going to hurt chromoly or stainless steel with brass, I've accidentally grabbed the wrong cleaning rod and jammed a 26 cal jag into one of my 22-250s it was hard as hell to get out, but my buddy run the bore scope up in it and you couldn't even tell it happened.

Re: Working up load

It's copper after all, as I type KG-12 is working miracles, I haven't used it in this rifle, never had so much copper fouling before, it's either excessive speed of the loads or V-Max is made from different material, which I doubt.

Re: Working up load

Sounds like your getting your barrel to hot, try some RE10X, with that I can send 15 rounds downrange and not get as hot as 5 rounds with 4895 or 4064.

Re: Working up load

Yep, primers show a lot of pressure, looks like they got print of the bolt surface...
From 100 yard zero it took 3.5 MOA to get to 300 yards... Its about 3300.0 ft/s, this is fast but I'm not shooting match barrel... Its Remington factory varmint barrel.

Re: Working up load

Went back to the original 25.5 gr load and the results where amazing! 300 yards 1" - 1.5" groups at 100 yards .24" I think I'll stick to my old proven load, forget super-speed nothing but trouble.

Hey bud if you have some RE10X load up a couple for shits and grins it may give you the best of both, speed and accuracy, like I said both of my 22-250s love it. But I sounds like it shooting pretty damn good.

Re: Working up load

RL-10, hmmm maybe, never had any experience with it, RL-15 the lowest one I tried from Alliant, but H-335 was performing very good before, going to repeat myself: I didn't like how it was getting in every part of the powder dispenser.
