    Colorado is looking more like California....

    Colorado big game reg has been putting warning about getting lead out for years. I figured just matter of time before we have lead free ammo.

    As I said I just shot few test loads. I don't chrono those loads and also give me chance adjust seating and decide if I want to use Nosler or Peterson brass. Same with Fed 210m or Fed 215. I load at range so doesn't take much to get good test loads to start with.

    Finally got some R-26. I loaded up few test loads for 280AI using 175gr ABLR and was about 1" from existing load @ 100yds. Glad Nolser had some loading data.

    Reloading Manuals Must Have

    Hornady X and Sierra Vl Manual have loading data for 308 Norma mag. I think you can get data on line may have to pay for it. Just looking, Hornady has better selection of powder, both use Norma case.

    Redding neck bushing for new Nosler 280 Ackley brass

    I'm little late. I use .311 bushing and inside is .281. Some may like little more or some like little less. I do clean up necks and most neck thickness varies .001". I measure 4 places on neck so I can get high/low and not using current brass, mine few years old. I had Wilson seater made...

    Hornady data for Superformane max is 59.3gr @ 2750fps for all Hornady 180gr/178gr bullets and start is 48.9gr @ 2300fps for 30-06. Did you do any workup loads or chronograph?

    Do barrels "get faster"?

    Read this again One example I've used frequently is the .300 RUM and .308 Winchester: The .300 RUM has just about twice the powder capacity as the .308, but does NOT produce twice as much velocity--a 100% increase. Instead the velocity increase, with the same bullet at the same pressure, is...

    Do barrels "get faster"?

    This was done over 24 hr Dunno either, and can only guess at what Steve's point is about Homer Powley and the 4-to-1 Rule. For those who aren't familiar with it, the 4-to-1 Rule is that any increase or decrease in the powder capacity of rifle cartridges of the same caliber results in about...

    Ever had one of THOSE rifles?

    Sure did. I shot HBR with 30x44 and 30x47 both tight necks. I shot BIB 118gr and bullet he no longer makes. It was pretty good match rd and we never shoot pass 300yds. I get on BR site and last few years haven't heard much about either one but nice to see someone enjoy one. Good luck
