Is the 47.3 grains of R26 what you would consider a max load?
Thats a coated bullet charge in my gun! Start at 43gns and do a ladder to find the sweet spot for your rifle. Color the ogive of your bullets with different sharpie's for each charge I use .3 grain increments. I'd use 2.820 for coal to start. In a sammi chamber this has shot well for many
Is 200 or 300 yards far enough for a ladder test? If not it’s a 45 min drive to shoot further
300 MINIMUM! 400 is better.

Bump. Anymore FPS confirmations?
Just finished putting together my Howa 24" barreled varmint action. HS Prec stock.
After suggested barrel break in, using Hornady factory 140 ELDM match, I was
disappointed that the MV using my Magnospeed V3 averaged 2625 fps. The
advertised FPS is 2710. Not surprised as most factory ammo doesn't meet
box MV. Haven't started reloading this 6.5 CM yet. Only 50 down the tube so far.
The Factory Hornady is accurate. Repeatable .375 MOA at 100.
I believe you should see a 100 ish FPS gain after you shoot a few hundred rounds
I had a 24in ruger. I achevied 2880 out of it with rl-17. My dad has a 22in and we were able to squeeze 2900 out of it with rl-26. But most of his loads fall around 2700-2750. I have a 26in now and I have 3 loads that it's shoots well. 42 grains of h4350 yields 2840, 42 grains of rl-17 2885 and 48 grains of rl-26 2945. All with the 140 eld-m.

Did you ever try h4831sc? That sounds like a stout load. I may have to try 4350. I built a 25” barreled creed for a friend and he wants to push the 143 eldx at least 2850, is his goal.
