  1. Anybody loading this? Just curious what powders are working well.

    My understanding was it came from where they are loading ammo. So maybe it goes from powder company like hodgdon to federal ammunition and then they finish a run with some leftover? That's all I can figure.

    It was in stock for more than 12 hours. I did a small amount of digging and it is left over powder from one of the larger ammo manufacturers. They get it in large barrels and pack it into smaller jugs. They give a little load info and warn you to start 10% down. While I don't see it anywhere on that link, other people have seen them advertise with some of their powders "Similar to titegroup" or whatever . The thinking is that it actually is whatever they claim it is similar to but they can't legally say exactly what it is. I think I'd get some if I was desperate but I'm not desperate.

    I know nothing about this powder but they have lots if anyone needs it. https://americanreloading.com/en/reloading-pistol-powder/3048-mp-190-smokeless-pistol-powder-12-lbs.html

    OCW hmmmmm

    So I ran 5 rounds over the chrony today. 2936 2936 2930 2930 2936 Never have i had speeds so damn tight.

    Moved out to 200 yds and it was fairly simple to get to the optimal charge. Next week I'll have to run a bunch over the chrony and see what speeds we have.

    What do you mean split? I was increasing 1% so about .7 grains

    It was 100 yards. 200yds is on deck some time this week. Started somewhere around 66 and increased 1% with the final load being 69.1gr Nosler manual has 68 being max for a 190 gr accubond. These are Berger VLDs and there are no pressure signs. I want to throw these over the chrony while I'm doing this but the range I belong to has lanes shooting through 5' concrete sewer pipe for noise suppression. They are about 20 feet long so by the time I have it set up, its almost 25 feet away. I suppose I could do it but I don't think that would work very well.. So for the chrony, i have to use the 50 yard range. Also, the rifle is a Tikka Hunter with a Burris fullfield II 6.5-20x50mm. The scope wouldn't have been my choice but it was already on the rifle when I bought it from my ffl guy. As it turns out, i like the scope.
  12. Attempting to work up a load on my 300 mag. So I'm doing the OCW thing, with 190 gr Berger VLD's and RE17. The first charge weight was a little off but then every charge after that was identical. 7- 3 shot groups, exact same spot and almost the exact same size. First world problem?
  13. Long time, no post. Lately I've been messing with my 300 magnum, trying to get a load ready for elk and mule deer. Last years load was horrible shooting it this year and for the life of me, I couldn't figure out why. So messing around led me to 180 gr accubonds and it started out good. I was all settled with a max load of RE17 when group size opened up astronomically. I used an F word. So everything that could possibly come loose on my scope mount did. I spent an hour last night tightening, adding loc-tite, swearing, etc. Today, the groups are sub MOA and I'm back to happy!
  14. My local reloading shop has powder all the time. Not always exactly what I need but I run across what I need in a few trips.
