An loads//// velocity//// accuracy?
They seem to fit right into the 30-378 and my opinion is they do away with some of the diminishing returns of the oversized 378 case when used with a 30 cal. The accuracy nodes we have seen are better than that of the 30-378 with 210's. The bullet works very well with the standard 1 in 10 twist too. Get some H-1000 and Fed 215's, seat em at oal 3.800" and work up a load. I think you will be pleased.
Thank you Jeff I saw your response on the Bee forum.
Unfortunately my quick-load does not list the 230 gr berger.
Just wondering what kind of velocity I can get 3000-3100 fps would be great.
I do get 3275 fps with the 210 .
My accuracy node with the 210 was a couple hundred slower than yours. I used H-1000 and looked for a large accuracy node and low ES. We did the same thing with the 230's and found a good node at close to the same velocity. Have never seen pressure signs with either of the loads so there sure could be another node at a higher charge. We didn't push it to extend brass life. The Hodgdens site has some data for some 220 gr bullets and that is what we used for a starting point. I was reluctant to post our charge as I was thiking you might be using a different headstamp brass and I don't know the volume of it. I think you can get to 3000 plus. But if it were me I would look at the ES and the node first. I have seen these bullets in action from a 300 win with a MV 2775 first hand for many kills to 1000 yards. They do a good job of defying wind and are a very good long range killer too. I would think that 2 to 300 added fps would only enhance all of their awesome traits.
Thank you jeff
I have never been interested in a 30-378, but I can see where this bullet could be a game changer. It seems that this combo could be a competitor with the big 338's as far as long range accuracy is concerned.
any specific loads
h1000 berger recommends 90.5 to 95.5...i read somewhere someone used 94.5 with good luck
Thats where we are at with a 2 to 3 grain accuracy node. No sign of pressure here with our lot of H-1000 in Wby Headstamp brass. I think velocities were around 2950 to 3000 , from a 26". POP, you can probably go higher but I have not been there so I can not say. You know what to do, work her up slow.
PS: maybe just hoha but I have seen several long range 30 cals get very happy around the 3K mark. Probably just coincidence but it sure was evident.
