    The thing is I do not need or want a slower velocity, I am chasing high velocity in the Swedish Mauser M96 6.5x55! I want an accurate load to a minumum of 2100fps if possible. The load data for cast bullets is limited. For a 140 grain jacketed...

    I'm not clear on your ammo. Is it reloaded using the Win .223 53 gr bullet, or are they factory rounds? If reloaded, the brass may need trimming. Is the chamber 5.56 Nato or .223 commercial? Check it out they are slightly diff. Per chance are...

    I should outline what I mean by reduced load. The max load for H4350 and H4831 are 44 and 47 respectively! I am looking at loads of 30-33 and 35-38 respectively in the 6.5X55.

    Hi guys, whats the likelihood of experiencing a SEE when using a reduced load of a slow powder and a cast bullet! It seems from what I have read CB will not get stuck and result in a pressure spike! I am however still uneasy about loading up with...
