I am posting some results to help the next guy out. Getting this gun to shoot well wasn't even fun, it was a quest. After 5 range sessions I just gave up on the Barnes 190 LRX and H1000 and switched to the 212 ELDX with N565.

Rifle

Remington 700 w/26" Proof

Load

Hornady brass (trimmed 2.574)

FED215

212 ELDX (.02 off lands)

N565 (73.5 gr final load)

Velocities

71 gr - 2710 fps produced 1/2 moa but slow

72 gr - 2746

72.5 gr - 2767

73.0 gr - 2792

73.5 gr - 2815 (final load)

74.0 gr - 2823

SD's all around 10 or less

Obviously I could chase velocity but I am happy with how it shoots. 2815 gives me 1800 fps at 1000. It's a hunting rifle and no more.

Hornady precision hunter 212's shot 2940 in my rifle producing .6-7 MOA. It's decent in a jam.

Take it for what it is, decent starting point with N565. I'm sure you could get more velocity if you want. I had no pressure signs in that range. I haven't stretched her out yet, I'll post some results when I get a chance.
