Well I have been thinking about this for a while and figure rather than spread all of our findings out in various threads why not just keep it all in one. So I decided to fire away and start it off. IF you thinki it might help out with the folks who are just getting into them feel free to pass along any input you feel pertentant, or ask questions about things your looking to try. Like was mantioned, it might help someone save some barrel wear or components. This rigs are made for two things, reaching out and touching something with authority, and burning large amounts of powder doing so. So here we go, Roy, As Tim mentioned in the other post, down here it is very hard to get some of the load densities that others are getting. Even using the 872 we are still somewhere between 4-6 or so grains behind most in our loads. Using 869 I have loaded up to 102grs, however this was only when the temps were hovering around the low 70's. Even at the upper 70's tepms a 100gr load was showing some pretty significant extractor marks. Stephen, I don't have any 150 NBT's at this time but here is a Solid Base in with the 169.5 & 195 Wildcat's for comparison, From left to right, 150gr Nosler Solid Base, 169.5 Wildcat, 195gr Wildcat Hope this helps, I just figured that we could use one thread to summarize our data rather than spreading it out between several. It doesn't have to be exclusively for the .270 or .277, but it will make searching for data on them all a little easier.
