You're right! It's impressive that you found rl33 ! Was this with the 264wmi?
I know this is an older thread, but I just ran across it. I have a pre-64 264 Win that I'm getting ready to start fooling with, can't remember if it's a 24" or 26" (aftermarket) barrel. I'm mainly interested in bullets in the 130-140 grain range (likely Ballistic Tips and Accubonds) and was wondering what powder you've had luck with in that range? I have a 300 Win that loves IMR 4350 and quite the stockpile of it, so I'm leaning that way to start with, with the current situation.In my 264 WM 26" Bbl. I'm driving Nosler 140 AB's at 3229 fps. Hammer Hunter 121gr at 3450 fps, & 100gr Barnes TTSX at 3700+ fps. Not the slighest sign of over pressure in any of these loads. It's just a matter of the right powder. I'm using off the shelf Win & Rem brass. Another plus for the 264 WM is relatively inexpensive 7mag brass can also be used. A simple neck down to 264, instant 264 brass. Who knows what the further holds. Wish we were close so I could show you some of the 264 positive virtues.
Will do. I’m gonna fireform some loads this weekend. My problem now is since I blew the taper out of the case I can’t use my standard 264 WM bushing die to resize the necks so I can load up the fireformed cases. I’m going to order custom dies but they are 14-16 weeks after they receive my fired brass.
I will be trying to figure out a work around while waiting though. Does anyone know of a universal bushing type neck sizing die?
If you know anyone with a 26 Nosler and a set of dies you could probably use them to neck size enough of the neck to get by.
I wanted to follow up on this. The 26 Nosler die was a bust. I ordered a Redding competition bushing die for a 26 Nosler. For whatever reason (I'm thinking due to the slightly longer case body of the Nosler) the sliding sleeve bottoms out and only sizes 1/2 of the neck.I was looking at a 26 Nosler die and thinking the same thing.
