Loaded up some 44 special with 7.5 gr of power pistol and 8 gr with a 200 gr XTP. Shot at 10 yards with open sights, the load with 7.5 gr was nothing to write home about but the 8 gr charge was the goods in my model 29 44 mag. Gonna try it with 8.5 gr next time I get it out.
I have a couple boxes of Speer 240 JSP deep curl bullets and thinkin about loading a few in my 444 Marlin to see how they shoot? I know Remington used to make a load for the 444 with a 240 gr JSP, I’m not sure how they’d hold up against a deer or bear at 444 velocities.
Looking into getting another rifle next year, I'm looking at another 7mm-08 or 25-06. Both barrels have a 1-10 twist. Anyone know what weight bullets are normally best for that rate of twist in those calibers?
Ran some 50 gr Blitzkings with a max charge of Varget. This is the same exact load I run with the 45 gr Varminter and had the same p o i. I’m gonna try the 50 gr Varminter with the same load and see how they shoot. From what I’ve read the Blitzking is a little on the explosive side on impact.
Haven’t been on in a while and thought I’d post a pic of the load I came up with for my 22-250 with a 45 gr Sierra Varminter with 36 gr of Varget. Can’t wait to put em to use coyote hunting this winter.
I made up a dummy round last night for my 7mm-08 with a 139 gr Hornady BTSP Interlock, I barely seated the bullet and chambered it and the O A L measured 2.866, it chambers and ejects with no trouble at all and fits the magazine with no trouble. Is seating it another .050 and starting with low...
Took the 280 to the range this morning and ran some 139 gr Hornady BTSP Interlock bullets with IMR-4831. This is the second time out with the bullet seated .010 deeper than the last load I tried and the accuracy greatly improved.
Got a pound of Relaoder 17 over the weekend to try in my 7mm-08 with 150 gt BT and PT. Anyone have good results using this powder in this caliber? The Hornady manual shows the burn rate between IMR & H4350 and Ramshot hunter.
Tried a box of Trophy Trophy Grade 7mm-08 140 gr Accubond ammunition this morning and was really surprised at how well it shot. Hands down the most accurate out of what I tried. Wouldn’t be afraid to go hunt with it.
