    Interesting topic & I am enjoying reading the posts. Thanks for putting the topic up! :) I think this^ is the only reason I separate by headstamp. Trying to keep as best a "constant" when testing loads. It is also the only reason I would...

    Either H4895 or IMR4895 with the 311291 and a Dacron filler. I use IMR4895 at 26 gr with the Dacron filler under my 311291 for maximum velocity while holding 2 - 2 1/2 moa out to 200 yards. It runs 1975 fps. Better accuracy is had at 24.5 gr...

    IMO, Not enough data with just 12 shots, 6 at a time with two different shooters. Reshoot/Repeat testing using same parameters, but use more of them ( like 10-15) & see if you have a repeat of the same type of results. I shoot a minimum of 10...

    Get PC on the grip point before you start makes life easier -- PC already on the glove won't take PC off the boolit

    Any will work. Just pinch some PC before you start getting a thin coating of PC on the gloves and your good to go.

    How do you explain this???? I was helping a son do load development, He'd shoot 6 shots, we'd change targets, reload then I'd shoot 6 shots with the same charge so the gun had time to cool a little between shots. previously my son was doing all...

    I originally thought that to be the problem also....but it wasn't. Chamber cast and measurement of the front diameter of the chamber showed some cases with the .452 bullet were just too large even with all the flare removed. The diameter was just...

    Yes, oldred is correct. Hornady cases are too short as they are made for use with the flex tip jacketed bullet.

    For years I was also a fan of 3.5 gr Bullseye under the 358477 in the 38 SPL. Then I pressure tested and found that 4.0 gr not only gave more uniform internal ballistics but also was actually more accurate. The velocity ES usually runs 25 - 30...

    I have a P14 Para. Got it back in '06/'07. Came with the light and 5 mags. Absolutely no problems with the pistol of mags. It does have a tight match chamber though which requires .451 bullets.....utterly reliable with those and accuracy is...
