The gun is a BLR, so I guess I may might have had some problems. Never thought about the difficulty loading in the field, this will be my first experience outside of a lee loader.
I am going to keep reading and try not to blow myself up.
Also, since it is a BLR, should I get the Lee Pace setter set and factory crimp die as well, or should I buy the RCBS with the built in roll crimp? Sorry for the noob questions, but I am totally new to this stuff.
I load H4895 for both the 200gr Hornady Spire Point and Rem 200gr Pointed CoreLokt and for the Nosler 225 Partition. Velocity is great for my 20.5" barrel as is the accurcy is too. I had issues getting enough Varget in the case and still holding the OCL. I use Hornady dies and the Lee Factory crimp die. My guns a bolt but I back off the die to only parcialy size the cases. I all ways check to make sure the rounds chamber with ease.
The best accurcy for my gun was with 46.0grs of H4895 with the 200gr bullets, Lee factory crimp on the cannalure, and for my gun .030 to the lands. Velocity is 2488fps @ 70F and clover leaves @ 100yards. This is 2.7grs under max listed load and over its listed velocity (hornady)
