    I've not worked with AA2700 but given it's burning rate it should do well with those 174s. Should be able to push them to 2200 - 2300 fps and maintain reasonable pressures in that load range. That IMR4895 should be a good powder for 130 - 140 gr...

    No need to anneal but it'll shoot better with Bullseye.......I found that out using RBs, button bullets and Rapine 460210s. Start at 4 gr and work up to 8 gr in 1/2 gr increments. No need for fillet or wad. Larry Gibson

    If you run across any Hornady 175 RNSPs you might try them under 47 - 48 gr H4831. I've had excellent accuracy in several different milsurp 7x57s with that load. The flat base and long bearing surface works well in the "oversize" Mauser bores. ...

    Scharfschuetze You might bump that load up a bit. Hornady Manual, 8th Edition, shows a max "Service Rifle" (AR with 20" barrel 9" twist) load of 25.8 gr with that bullet for 2800+ fps. You might just not pushing it fast enough. Larry Gibson

    Here’s the pressure data I’ve taken so far with the Chilean M95 7x57 Mauser using an Oehler M43 PBL. The M95 is in excellent condition, has been “sporterized”with the original milsurp barrel now 22” long. All measurements are in “psi’s”as to...

    I have a plain Jane super 14 barrel in 44mag I bought second hand last year. I finally loaded up some Noe plain base and lubed them with Lar's red carnauba with about 10 grains of Unique. I was plinking with the other barrels at 100yds and decided...

    originaly 296 and 110 were different powders. Close in burning rates but they were different and different guns preferred one over the other. Today they are the same powder in different cans.

    ive got a smith ar22 if I want to run 22lr. subsonic. the idea here was to get my 223 rifle subsonic with this 100 grain bullet. With a bullet that heavy its power level would be in a different world then your typical 22 subsonic load. Ive tried...

    Lloyd Smale replied to a thread 223/5.56 subsonic in Cast Boolits
    problem is that if a guy uses a lighter spring or buffer you are going to end up have problems with having enough power to reliably chamber a new round. The 300 blackout develops more pressure at subsonic levels due to its heavier bullet. I thought...

    Not being facetious but perhaps just using a 200 - 240 gr PB'd cast bullet for a light load might be a better option? They work well with those powders. Larry Gibson

    You need to go back and look at the TM specification sheet again; The cartridge drawing gives the dimensions of the M80 Ball cartridge....2.8". That is a little shorter than the oal of the 30-06. No wonder we're having this discussion. The data...

    I concur with Bryan Litz who states in his very fine book on ballistics that there is no such thing as "over stabilization". A bullet is either stable for it's intended flight or it is not. If you watch bullets wander off down range before...
