Thats freaking awesomeDid first work-ups today for the 6.5-06AI and Absolutes. It's being a bit finiky which surprised me. Tried 4 powders will finish tomorrow I hope.
Started with R16. Too fast. So is N550. N560 too slow. Superformance surprised me. Hit 3500 but ignition was a little erratic. Going to try CCI 250s tomorrow and see if ignition is more consistent. My regular load with 124 Hunter Hammers is 3208 or so - so it looks like I'll get the 300 fps increase
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^Conventional loading methods are not the norm with this design.
Keep a open mind with these
I have a write up on the Lee FCD and how I use it to tune loads somewhere on here I think but if you have any questions just give me a hollar 812-264-6183 , my method works wit any bullet but its instrumental with the HammersThanks! Haven't fooled with neck crimping. We're learning with these new bullets. I assume with that change pressure will go up -so back off, test and increase powder?

Is this it?
I know this is going to start the age old battle of crimp or not to crimp and that's not what I'm trying to do so I'm stating "This is why I crimp", This is my opinion so take it for that, I'm just sharing my personal experience and what works for me I am not a competition shooter nor do I...www.longrangehunting.com
