55gr Pet Loads

Recommended Posts

I just built a new rifle with an 18" BHW standard profile 1x8 barrrel.

 

I bought some bulk 55gr FMJ bullets for plinking and have other hunting 55gr hunting bullets that I want to use.

 

Does anyone have pet loads for 55gr bullets that are being used specifically with these 1x8 BHW barrels? Accuracy is my primary goal here.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Garland

Anything using 8208xbr!!

 

Lol. They do like to run hott.

 

My pet load is nosler varmegeddon balistic tip 55gr with 8208xbr at 0.2 grains over listed max on hodgens website (25.2 I think but not sure right now!)

 

In my 18" mid length it's running right at 3000 FPS.

Wow! This powder gets rave reviews from several places on the net. Shame I can't find it locally anywhere...

I did pretty well with 50 Grain VMAX bullets loaded over 25.0 Grains of IMR 4895. OAL of 2.245" So far, this is my go to load using the 18" BHW 1:8 Twist Barrel.

I have used max loads of AA2200 in my BHW barrel and was happy. Also look at CFE or AA2015. GUARANTEED! !! LOL
