Starline 6.8 Brass; initial thoughts

Recommended Posts

Oh that's ugly.

 

If somebody wants to send me some Starline brass I'll be happy to load it for 6.8 and test. I don't yet have my 6 x 6.8 barrel to test with yet.

 

I'm trying to get some out of one of the guys now.

I finally got some quiet time so sat down at the bench and started grabbing cases. This is what I found on the ones I had. I will load these all up and shoot the same cartilages with teh same load and then go back and check final capacity. The Hornady are factory loads I shot beta testing a bolt the other day as I don't have any new cases in that brand and I don't want to pull down a batch of factory stuff.

 

Case Weight and H2O Capacity

 

ALL NEW UNFIRED

 

SSA 114.48 36.14 THIS IS OLD SSA!! Not sure what the new stuff is like.

Starline 124.88 34.88

Rem 122.84 34.96

Fed 124.48 35.18

 

FIRED

Horn. 132.06 35.58

 

We shall see how they act as I will use a good stout charge under a 110. Will there be an accuracy difference and how much will velocity change?

It'll be interesting to see the difference.

 

You shooting all the different manufacturers of cases the same time?

Yep one load, one bullet, one time. Through the LabRadar on paper.

Okay, Greg, splain me something. Are you just checking velocities or are you also checking accuracy?

Both but this first run is just to see case head abuse and velocity cahnge. One load level does not a good accuracy test make..LOL

Much appreciated. I'll also wring this stuff out on the 6X6.8 and the 22X6.8 too.
