I’m thinking about a winter project of working up a 162 Eldx load for my spare Tikka 7mm-08. She shoots the 150 eldx very well, 2790 fps at the muzzle. She’s the spare and I rarely shoot her, so why not test a new load, I have plenty of components.
Remington brass, WLRM, and I can load really...
So if Nosler is running at max capacity, where are all the blems? I’m used to seeing a lot more at SPS than I’ve seen in a long time. Are they making fewer mistakes?
I need 50 gr BT Varmint for my .223, and 160 AB for the 7mm Rem Mag!
I have a great load using the 150 eldx (2790 FPS, little bitty groups) but I keep hearing that the 162 eldx might be a better choice for longer ranges. I load the 162 in a couple of 7mm Rem Mags at 2986 fps, with great on-game performance as well.
So what does QL say about the 162 in the...
I'm looking for some information with loading Nosler's 70 gr RDF bullet in a 1-8" Tikka .223 Superlite. I'd like to shoot out to 700 yards or so and the published BC is .416, which interests me greatly. I loaded 24.5 gr of TAC at various seating depths but got inconsistent results.
I currently load for 2 7mm Rem Mags, both Tikkas. I have a bunch of once-fired brass, all Remington. Most of it (2/3) was fired in Tikka 1, the rest in Tikka 2. If I neck size only and the brass chambers easily in both rifles, am I good to go or do I still need to FL resize? I'll make sure...
I have a great load for my .30-06 but it doesn't shoot worth a hoot in my brother's rifle. I'm looking for options and I've settled on either 165 Accubond or 178 ELD-X.
165 NAB either Big Game or Hunter
178 ELD-X Hunter
Can someone run some magic for...
I need some help understanding the difference between max charges for these cartridges.
The max charge of Varget for the .308 using 150 AB or Partition loaded to 2.800" is 46.5 grains.
The max charge of Varget for the 7mm-08 using 150 AB or Partition loaded to 2.800" is 41 grains.
I got 2 boxes of the new 150 grain ELD-X bullets from Santa. Anyone have experience loading these bullets in a 7mm-08? I have Big Game, Hunter, and Varget.
I swapped the SA bolt stop on my Tikka Superlite for a LA stop and I reached the lands at 2.987". On the left is my main load, 140 NP...
My brother is trying to validate his drop at distance using my reloads in his 7mm Rem Mag. He was consistently low (7 shots) 1 MOA at 600 yards. Given Nosler's tendency to overstate BC, how accurate is the published .531 for the 160 NAB?
I'm thinking about transitioning to the Hornady ELD-X in my brother's T3 7mm Rem Mag. I bought a box each of 162 grain and 175 grain.
I use MagPro with the 160 Accubond and Retumbo with 180 VLD Hunting. How do these powders fare with the 162 and 175 ELD-X?
