When someone has the time and is able to run a QL for 257 Roberts + P.. Winchester brass, CCI 200 primer, and Nosler 85 gr BT bullets.
I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks

Predicted Data for Indicated Charges of the Following Powders.
Matching Maximum Pressure: 57000 psi, or 393 MPa
or a maximum loading ratio or filling of 110 %
These calculations refer to your specified settings in QuickLOAD 'Cartridge Dimensions' window.
C A U T I O N : any load listed can result in a powder charge that falls below minimum suggested
loads or exceeds maximum suggested loads as presented in current handloading manuals. Understand
that all of the listed powders can be unsuitable for the given combination of cartridge, bullet
and gun. Actual load order can vary, depending upon lot-to-lot powder and component variations.
USE ONLY FOR COMPARISON !

3 loads produced a Loading Ratio below user-defined minimum of 90%. These powders have been skipped.

Thanks so much Dr Mike.. Interesting that IMR4064 is not listed, that is what I have been working with. Worked up to what Nosler shows as a max load, 43.5 gr. Velocity runs around 3350 in my Ruger M77 MKII. Don't see any signs of pressure and shoots MOA at 100 yds.. Was just curious as to what QL would show for other powders..
Thanks again
Ed

Case fill is less than the parameters I set, which is why this particular powder didn't show. Clearly, it will work just fine for you.

I need to get my 257 Bob out and do some work with it. After developing an initial load, I put it away and have never worked with it again. Time has a way of slipping away.

Yep it sure does. My favorite varmint load was with 75gr Hornady hollow points and they stopped making them for something else that doesn't work as well with a fancy name (Varmagedon) whoopy. :?

Hornady does have the 75 gr Vmax.. I bought 2 boxes of these from Cabelas on sale a while back, but haven't had a chance to mess with them yet.. 3600 FPS, make a fun varmit round or just blowing up water bottles at 6-800 yds... My wife and I love doing that.. :lol:
And yes Dr Mike.. time does get away fast..
Take care

Time slipping away? Somewhere along the way I lost my butt! Now I have a long back, like a bullfrog! I'm constantly pulling up my pants! What happened? :evil:

It's all that black coffee. Does it every time. (y) Allows me to shoot better, as well. All I have to do is ensure that as the scope jitters that I pull the trigger at the same jiggle each time. :lol:
