    220 Swift Data

    Someone recommended AA2700 to me a while back. I'd found a really good load using 4064, but I tried 2700 anyway. I found just about the same accuracy, but noted that the 2700 load did not heat the barrel nearly as fast as 4064 does. I'm seeing groups of about 1/2 inch, and velocities well over...

    No longer available here.

    Just a few threads down: I'm willing to sell these outright. It seems my desires for a swap seems to be a no-go these days, so I'm willing to just sell outright and then go shopping for what I want. I'm...

    Those were the days!

    I've had the same thoughts regarding component availability in general. Maybe, once the ammo market reaches saturation, components will become reasonably available again. Fingers crossed!

    Hotter data, at least for Re15. I've used the max Re15 data for years, and some go with an even heavier charge with no reported problems.

    Trade WTT .264" 140-gr Partitions - 8 boxes (plus a few others)

    Having inventoried my bullets, I found that some of my standbys are getting a bit low and I have some other bullets I have not developed loads for and would rather not since primers and brass have been hard to find lately. Some are just bullets I want to quit using. To simplify, my excesses...

    Target bullets for deer

    I think it really just depends. If you're expecting impact velocities of 3200 fps, you need a tougher bullet and a mono may be just the ticket. If you have to shoot a mono, then choose a lighter one for your caliber and drive it as fast as you can accurately. If your cartridge can't drive the...

    Nosler 70-gr .224" RDFs for hunting?

    RL338, I saw's encouraging and suggests that they may work. Maybe I'll just have to load some up and take em down to "the ranch" and see how the hogs like em. I could be surprised or I could be disappointed. I think I'm allowed to bring along some AB loads just in case they don't do...

    Nosler 70-gr .224" RDFs for hunting?

    So...I conducted an inventory on my bullet stash the other day and found I am sitting pretty. Among the bullets counted was about 500 of the 70-grain RDFs which I originally bought to try out in a Model 70 HB some years ago (before I found out the rifling was trashed in the original barrel) in...

    Target bullets for deer

    Jim...I was searching for info on using Nosler RDFs for hunting and I ran across this thread. You pose an interesting question, and I have one answer to it. When I was playing with the 6.5 Grendel in an AR a few years ago, I did a little searching and researching and stumbled upon the...

    Annealing vs not annealing at 1000 yards

    The internet is a wonderful vehicle for becoming what you are not, but want to be. Pretenders suck.

    35 Whelen loading questions.

    This might not be where the issue lies, but it's something to always remember... I was given a couple hundred pieces of 6mm Remington brass a few years ago. I tucked it away. When I decided to see about prepping it, I checked headstamps. It was all R-P, but I noticed subtle differences in the...

    Quick Load?

    QL is a great tool and a good toy for acquiring new knowledge via the "what if" games that can be played with it. However, QL does N-O-T generate loading data as we generally use the term. I say that because bonafide, published loading data is pressure tested and QL outputs are mere...

    70 grain Accubond in a 1-8” .223?

    Can't offer any experience with Varget in this case, but I know Benchmark will work with 50s. You'll get that done with ease.

    222 Remington Load for shorter barrel

    I think I'm jealous, Scotty. Wait, no...I AM jealous! Should be a sweet rifle! Nothing like a seven year-old thread to shine the light on change. I'm now using LT-32 in my junky old 788, but still shooting 50-grain V-Max. The LT-32 won't get anywhere near the velocities X-Terminator give, but...

    70 grain Accubond in a 1-8” .223?

    BTW, I had been waiting for months to get my hands on more 70 ABs from SPS...when I finally saw them the other night I tried to buy 500 more, but could only get 450. I guess I got the last of them! I bet it'll be another year before we see them again.

    70 grain Accubond in a 1-8” .223?

    PS, I've played with the 70 AB in my hogslayer ARs, which I believe are 1:8s (both are LaRue barrels). I chose AR-Comp because I have a lot of it on hand and it was not slated for any other use...I had no trouble getting near-MOA performance using 23.0 grains of the stuff. I'm still not very...

    New 70-Grain

    Follow up: I used QuickLOAD and compared its output with available data for bullets in the 69-grain to 77-grain range, and loaded up trial loads ranging from 22.3 to 23.5 grains of AR-Comp. I shot them in two nearly identical rifles with 18-inch LaRue barrels. I could tell immediately that the...

    New 70-Grain

    I was looking for .223 Rem data, shooting an AR. The data shown on the site is for the 70-grain RDF...which is obviously better than a WAG, but data specific to the Accubond would be nice. I have, and run QuickLOAD and that's better than a WAG also. I still would like to see published data, though.

    New 70-Grain

    I have been unable to find any loading data for this new bullet. I have managed to find some of the bullets to try out, but I'm puzzled as to why Nosler has not published any data at all---at least, not that I have been able to find. Am I just looking in the wrong places?
