Ok, here is the final velocity average for the 156HH:
3252
Es19
SD10

looks like this will be the load since it shot well. Just a 100 yards but all the time I had today. Cannot still believe how fast! I will look over the guesses and publish "winner".! As stated, box of Hammers and box of .308 178 ELDX.

This was a fun ride!

Not a good day, left target stand downrange and guys were there I don't know. Hopefully there so I can take pic of target.🤬

Lucky day! Guys pulled target for me figuring I would be back and wanted group. I need to get crimping die but cannot find one. Should tighten up a bit. Trigger still not quite right but will work on that too. Will measure when I get home but under MOA. Center is 1 inch.

Nice work! I just started shooting ladders today with my 1-7 twist and the 139 AH.

I neglected to spec a longer throat for this build so it's a bit short, but fits the AH just fine.

Just started with rl16 and capped out around 3150 with the beginnings of pressure. Will be moving on to h4350
h100v and maybe eventually staball 6.5. to see what kind of legs she has!

These loads were safe in my rifle. Use standard SAFE reloading practices to determine what is safe in your firearm. Work your loads up safely.
I ran the 117HH in Savage 110C 53 years old 24" 1:10 Shaw barrel with
RL17
55.0-3129
57.0-3300
58.0-3325
58.5-3341
59.0-3375-stopped no pressure, felt it was close

IMR4350 and Varget were not quite as fast.
IMR4350
55.0-3003
57.0-3093
58.0-3182
58.6-3244
58.9-3244 stopped

Varget
51.0-3152
51.5-3167
52.5-3220
53.5-3316 slight ejector stopped

I jumped loads when I realized pressure was not a problem.

Winner: Calvin45 with great guess of 3277! As a joke he said! He was 25 fps over the average of 5 rounds I did earlier today! And was only 7 fps under the max velocity registered with slight ejector pressure! Now that is quite the guess!

Second closest was GrayCreed at 3206 who gets a 👏!

Calvin45: I will send you a PM to get details so I can send along the bounty!

Looks like I am on the hook for this one, @Muddyboots

@Calvin45 is a fellow Saskatchewanean, so getting the projectiles across the border may be an issue. Hit me up, Calvin, I have a box of 7mm 162gr eld-x with your name on them!

Awesome results, Muddy - that was a lot of fun!
