Just started to load for my Vanguard S2 and picked up some ELDX bullets. Any suggestion for powders to try?
Here’s Nosler’s load data with 110gr bullets. They show starting at 70.0gr with H1000. I would start there and work up.I actually have H1000. What would be a good charge weight to start at?
7828 works great in the weatherby,s. My pet load with 117 grain is 67 of 7828 with a cci250 primer. It works.Just started to load for my Vanguard S2 and picked up some ELDX bullets. Any suggestion for powders to try?
I second this. Choose a better built bullet for your 257 wby than that eld-x.Might want to consider the 110 accubond and 7828ssc. The eld-x would not be my choice at weatherby speeds.
I also use RL-22 with the 120 gr Sierra in my 257. Works great, appx 3350 ft/sec with .75 MOA in my 24" barreled Vanguard.I am running RL22 with 110 Accubonds and easily getting a bit over 3400 from a Mark V ULW with 26" of Barrel. Accuracy is fantastic and RL22 is still very easy to find.
