As some of you know, I am getting a Remington 700 BDL in .30-06!

I've seen QL loads for 24 inch barrels, but not 22 inch ones, like I will have.
Would it be possible to get the QL loads in RL-26, StaBall 6.5, H4350, and RL-22 for the 165 gr Nosler Ballistic Tips, and the 180 gr Nosler Ballistic Tips please?
Pressure is the normal, 60,000 psi ( 50,000 CUP ).
I apologise if this is a duplicate post that someone else may have asked before.

Powder is H4350. That would explain the v.

Agree on the dangerous load status.

As I understand it, It is in the note below the table. If there is 10% variation in lot to lot, it can go over 70,000 psi
I am waiting for Dr. Mike to comment. I can run the rest, but I would just be pushing buttons...I want to input from the Dr. so I can help people when he is busy

Thank you for running the first info!
I greatly appreciate it!

I'm thinking the first dangerous load is called that due to differences in rifle chambers, and throat lengths.

Here is the RL26 and 180 Nosler BT. There are two listed, only run on one of them. You know once you have muzzle velocity and fired case water volume you can further calibrate QL

I think the 30-06 is a 60k psi cartridge in QL, so basically anything that could be 10% more gets marked as caution or dangerous.

I love me some QL and use it a lot, but in order for the outputs to be close the inputs need to be refined a bit.

I’d love to see how much 26 you could fit in there with a 180, cause darned if 2900 with a 180 isn’t good stuff.

I usually try to get 5-10 fired cases and get the water volume and muzzle velocity and temperature when I shot them. I then update the data in QL and try to calibrate. But as so many people said...the proof is when you go out there and shoot

For sure. Awesome tool. I’ve heard many poo poo it, but it has been very useful to me and I’m a knuckledragger. Guys like Dewey and Mike have really made it sing.

I brought it up in another forum and I swear, people were ready to shoot me. I run simulations of other kinds for living and I know, its a simulation, nothing compared with real world experience. But take the time to learn from it and save some time and money. Use the tool is it was intended.
I am just a geek I guess...I am trying to learn more...

Briefly, case capacity is almost always more than 100%. Stick powders often max out at 114% due to compaction. 110% is not a particularly compressed load for most powders. Interestingly enough, when I do a quick run of RL26 and 180g BT, the projection looks like this:

When measuring maximum case capacity, overflow, it is important to use deoxygenated water. It is sufficient to allow the water to sit open overnight. Then, ensure that it is pipetted into the case at STP (ambient temp. etc.). Pipette until you form a convex meniscus. That is the measurement that should be input into the programme.

I've been busy (actually firing at the range for the past couple of days--358 Norma Magnum, 8X68S, 30-06, 284 Win). I still have several cartridges to work with. This is between my normal duties, which have never slowed down. On top of this, it is moose/black bear season, and elk opens in a couple of days! Things get a bit hectic. You are always welcome to fire me a PM, and I'll answer when I'm able.

Hope this helps.

Briefly, case capacity is almost always more than 100%. Stick powders often max out at 114% due to compaction. 110% is not a particularly compressed load for most powders. Interestingly enough, when I do a quick run of RL26 and 180g BT, the projection looks like this:

Code:

Cartridge O.A.L. L6: 3.340 inch = 84.84 mm
Barrel Length      : 22.0 inch = 558.8 mm
Powder             : Alliant Reloder-26 *C

incremented in steps of 1.0% of nominal charge.

Thanks Dr. Mike. I am jealous. Too hot down here. I will only do one hunt this year, just white tail, for meat.
So nothing really wrong with my QL runs? any suggestions are always welcome.
Cheers and good shooting!

Good luck in the hunting fields Mike. May the moose pass near the truck buddy!

Glad to see you getting some of your boomers out and working! You’ve got a brace of great rifles!
