I was recently fireforming some new ADG brass in my 26" Rem 700 VS. For fun, I decided to load some 208 AMAX I had sitting around. I seated them .020 off the rifling (3.055) over 40.0 grains of IMR 4320. I normally weigh my charges. This time, I threw them from my Redding powder measure. This is a pretty sedate load, with a muzzle velocity around 2400.208 Amax, (NOT moly coated)
48.0 gr RL-17
CCI 200 primer
3.10" OAL (kisses lands in my factory Rem varmint barrel)
2580 fps in 20.5" barrel, per Magnetospeed chrono
As always, start low and work up. Every rifle is different.
My load development with Sierra 155 Palma (2156), Sierra 175 TMK, and Berger 185 Juggernaut:Hope nobody minds if I ask if anybody could post a few loads they worked up.Thanks any extra info would be a blessing...
