    300WM Ladder Help 180HH

    Thanks all. Great advice. Can you see the pic. If so you can see I didn’t number my shots. My bad. I wish I had as there are at least 1double holed there. And several touching. The top line of holes where all the last 5 shots. Very little vertical variation in them. Could have been squeezing...

    300WM Ladder Help 180HH

    So I found some RL26. Wiped up a batch using 180HH’s. Peterson brass Wilson mandrel, Fed 215’s and a very light Lee crimp to finish it off. Savage 116 SS fluted 22” barrel. Here’s my shots and info. Opinions on why my velocity fell off. Node 78.5 - 78.8 but that’s pretty low. I will probably add...

    300WM Peterson brass help

    If I run them as is which I’m not against then if I get good results I would need to be able to reproduce that neck tension. Agreed?

    300WM Peterson brass help

    Looking for a little help here from you guys. Bought some Peterson 300WM Long brass. Was going to start loading them and upon measuring the inside neck dia. I found they are between .302 and .3035. That seems like way to much neck tension to me. I was expecting to put about .002 on it. I will...

    Savage ultralight. May have to change the stock. Got one in 280AI and it shoots nice. Haven’t had time to developer a load yet.

    300 Win Mag???

    I have a Savage 116 stainless fluted barrel and comes with a open or shut brake. It won’t hurt your shoulder at all. I love it and continue to develop more loads for it. Right now working with the HH 180gr. N568 had a good group but you fill the case before you power out. So I’m trying RL17 and...

    Hammer Hunter test 300WM Questions

    What barrel length if I can ask. I like RL22 but found this 568 and thought I’d try it.

    Hammer Hunter test 300WM Questions

    This powder was the new N568. Tried 4831 sc and my rifle didn’t like it. Seems to like this though. Expected a little more velocity from the 180. Only a 23” barrel.

    Hammer Hunter test 300WM Questions

    I’m trying the 180 gr Hammer Hunter in a Savage 116 Bear 22” barrel and 1:10 twist. I started at the below data at 200yds. I have not found pressure yet but my deviations are dropping as I go up in powder. You can cover these 4 shots with a quarter. Two questions, Steve says these bullets like a...
