    I never tried the Hornady bullet, but the 115 Nosler BT in front of 53 grns of H4831SC got me approx 3100'/sec from a factory remington 24" barrel.

    Oh, WW Brass, CCI 200 Primer, seated .010 off the lands.

    Paper at 100 and 200, steel at 300. This load shot pretty darn well for an unaltered factory rifle, the fine grid lines on the paper targets are 1/2" apart, the steel is a 6" X 6" plate. I'll be filling up another 200 rounds of this load pretty soon, just recently got the rifle back from being free floated and bedded........it started shifting poi on me from day to day. Hopefully the bedding/barrel touching stock was the issue and not another scope problem.

    I've got an Encore that shoots .450 average with 50.5 gr. H4831sc behind a 117 gr. SST lit with a federal match primer on a very consistent basis. No, it's not the hottest load but avg. just under 1/2MOA sealed the deal. Still pushing 2991fps with it though. Have another bolt gun that likes 51.3gr. H4831SC behind a 115gr. Nosler ballistic tip for sub MOA performance as well. Both in remington and hornady brass, moving to all remington brass gradually.

    My 2506 likes 115 bergers in front of h1000. It shot really well with 110 accubonds and I believe it was h4350.
