    Load development for Rem-Hart_30-06

    A little off topic here but what was your overall experience with Hart? I have a rifle that’s been waiting for a re-barrel and want to use Hart due to their locality and past reputation. BTW - I have three 30-06’s that I reload for which use 180g PTs over 58-62g of RL-22. How many rounds do...

    Long, dark, cold...and overthinking guns. Again.

    If I had an Alaskan zip code, I would be carrying a 358Norma. You can use any standard length action to get a very versatile and efficient cartridge. Consider a 200gr AB @ 3150fps or a 225gr AB @ 3000fps or a 250gr PT @ 2800fps or 280gr A-Frame @ 2650fps. That covers the whole gamut of big game...

    Busin Caps-2014

    Do you sell them for scrap metal or just accumulate to see how much you've shot?

    130 B-Tip from a 270 Win

    I've re-introduced these into my .270 lineup of late. I lost faith soon after their original release due to their explosive characteristics. I bought a bunch of blems about two years ago in order to try out their new design and at worst have an accurate range load. They shot great, as always...

    200 grain corelokt - 35 Whelen

    I've always felt that 200gr CoreLock was designed for the 35Rem and velocities not exceeding 2100fps. Your bullet here looks pretty good though. I think the Speer 220gr FP and Sierra 225gr GK are perfect for deer and the 35 Whelen.

    30 06 and superformance powder

    My results with SuperFormance and 168gr BTs was very unnerving. Extreme velocity spread and very inaccurate. I have since read that mag primers are the way to go with this very fine, ball powder. I'm hesitant to re-attempt as there are so many other powders that work well with this cartridge.

    25-06 w 110 grain Accubond

    I have found 49.0gr of RL-22 @ ~3100fps and 51.0gr of IMR-4350 @ ~3135fps to work well with the 110gr NAB in my 25-06. I have never worked with H-4350 in any rifle.

    Range day with the 7mm Bee

    I wouldn't shy away from trying the 160gr Hot-Cor in your 7mmBee. Should provide a better BC than the InterLocks and hold together as good or better. She is a beauty FOtis!

    Up next for my -06 with the 180gr BTs is Superperformance and IMR-4350. Aaron will repeat with IMR-4350 but start at 58.5 this time and increase in .5gr increments to 60.0gr. He'd like to get a good load with this powder first and then start messing with others. Aye, aye sir! With the .270W...

    S&W Model 19, an old favorite returns!

    Nice to see you've been re-acquainted with your old friend. Looks like you've shared some good times together. I have wanted a Model 19 for as long as I can remember. This past summer I was able to get my hands on a NIB Model 19-3 with a 4" barrel. The long wait was worth it. It has replaced my...

    Model 70 Range Day .270 Win 130 Grain Ballistic Tips

    They do look tempting! Hmmmmm...I think I know of a LGS that has some MagPro in stock. :idea:

    Model 70 Range Day .270 Win 130 Grain Ballistic Tips

    That's a gratifying start with your S.C. production M70 Sporter. I haven't heard of any complaints from that line. From the looks of your range, you should be able to take full advantage of that .270Win/130gr BT combo and reach out far and straight. I have always found H-4831 to be a...

    I will probably do just that with the two middle loads in that 270W as it has been very consistent. There's plenty of speed there already and I don't like to push the 130gr BTs too fast anyways. I know Aaron will want to experiment a bunch with his -06 so I foresee a bunch of load development...

    I then tried some RL-22 and 180gr BTs in my BDL IN 30-06. This gun is a donor that I just can't get the cash together to convert it. It continues to soldier on and take deer and Blackies for the past 7 or 8 years for various members of my extended family. The results here weren't too promising...

    I then broke out my friend's Model 700 in .270win, a Dick's Sporting Goods special version, that has shot well with everything she's thrown in it. I used RL-19 and IMR-4350 with 130gr BTs. The RL-19 showed some promise with the classic two in and one out pattern. The IMR-4350 performed a bit...

    Picked up an old BDL in 30-06 for my son recently. I couldn't pass it up as the price was good and it is in great shape. Came with a Weaver V-9W that is still usable. He loaded his own for the first time and really enjoyed it. We figured we'd use a tried and true load of IMR-4350 and 165gr...

    Hit the range today!!

    I would try to repeat your 50.5 gr result with the 25-06 and also try 50.0 and 51.0gr to see where your sweet spot is. I use 51.0gr of RL19 in the 25-06 with the 110gr AB and it's very accurate and repeatable. Good luck!

    Do I need a 243/6mm or 6.5mm?

    I don't see a need for a 6/6.5mm in your stable but there's a definite void in your large caliber slot. Something foreign in 8.6mm or 9.1mm would work great! :wink:

    Norma Reloading Manual #2

    Nice find. I have seen MRP fairly regulary lately. I've always had a hankering for the 358NormaMag.
