Some quick represntative speeds. Note the 95's were faster than the 87's because I was using the 87's at 500 and they were fantastic at those velocites. Capabilites add about 150-200 on them. These were no pressure laods that have extremely, 10-12 firings, long case life.

 

87 Hornady HPBT

PS: Once I crank up my 26" Savage in this one the numbers will go up quickly.

Went out and shot the 253lbc today and I'm going to run the 90 gr accubonds for deer getting 2945 for my average speed with 8208 on a three shot group it ran about an 1-1/2" group think I might bump the powder and run some ladder tests.

Sounds good. Post up the specifics when you get it done.

Got out and shot the 243LBC some more today. My choice of the day was 95gr VLD Hunting shooting 8208 powder.

Speeds were very consistent and I'm happy with the velocity.

My pleasure. A good load only looks good with a good shooter behind it though. Take a bow, you done good. :tiphat:

They work great. I have a video of mine on my 243lbc. I'll try to post. The only movement is the bolt sliding momentum.

They were designed for shooting in the prone. To protect the shooter and the spotter. Anyone outside of that will get their world rocked. I have shot it with no hearing protection and find it to be quieter than any other brake I have used.
