    mike33,

    I just started to work up a load for the 95 grain VLD's

    The best load I've found to this point ( 1/2" ) at 100 is ...

    46.1 grains H4350
    Lapua brass
    CCI large rilfe primers

    80 thou. off the lands

    No chronograph data yet. Best guess is between 2700 and 2800 ft/sec.

    I want to try some re-17 to see if I can get the velocity up and keep the accuracy.

    Less than 1/4" at 100 yards. I had to switch from Vit N560 to something because the Vit is impossible to find. I got tighter groups and more velocity with the 7828.

    Okey, 43.0 grains H-414 Vel. 3015 1/2" group. 44 grains vel. 3100 but group was 1" 2 in 1 out, want to re try it. I loaded some more of both to re test but wind is pretty bad here. I tried IMR 4350 on sat. 2 in 1 out highest vel around 2950. Reloader 19 43 and 44 grains vel to slow around 2700-2800 i guess it was to slow of burning powder and not enough in it. I will keep posting after next time to range, hoping the wind will quit.
