    Yes, it can matter a lot. Case capacity, head thickness, wall thinkness and case hardest need to be the same from shot to shot. As I posted before, the 7mm Norma brass will be the most consistent and last the longest. After that, I'd choose...

    I found some data that suggests that 9.0 gr of HS6 will give about 1150 fps in your appilication. If you have a chronograph, start there and work up to about 1400 fps. I noticed that you water drop your COWW, do not do that, you need the alloy soft...

    Yes, this can happen with any powder but, will happen in revolvers sooner than with rifles when lowering the powder charge and cylinder gaps can be very wide with warn and cheaper pistols. Always something to consider with revolvers. Frank

    No one that gives negitive info on 296/H110 has anything to back it up in rifle charges. Hodgdon, themself use it at 17,900 CUP in rifle loads. Besides RCBS, Speer has used it in 30/30. No SEE's have ever occured using it in rifles. It has a...

    Not knowing the groove diameter of your rifle, I will suggest a .324/.325 base band (min.). Load it out as far as possible into the lands. Flare the case mouth with a "M" die, before seating, if you shear lead at the bullet base, it will not shoot....

    Something to consider, is this bullet is designed to fit the neck with the GC still in side it AND the bands between the nose and the first drive band are made to fit the taper of the lead. Note their diameters. Frank

    This is what I did for a gallery load with my 8.15x46R German Schuetzen rifle. The groove dia is .316 and I had a 1 lb can of 00 buck. I bored the primer out to hold a 209 shotgun primer. I had hoped I wouldn't need any powder but, I had to use 1 gr...

    You do need to chronograph the load but, it could also be that the BC wasn't as predicted so, it could be a combiation of the two. Frank

    If you neck up the 6mm Rem cases, would be the easiest way to be sure that you don't have to turn necks. The 7mm case would be as almost as easy and has the same shoulder angle but, you'd have to make sure the neck doesn't thicken. I doubt that it...

    So, it is turning out that it's not really the RPM that is effecting the accuracy of the cast bullet in the <140K RPM range but, how well the bullet is cast, how well it's loaded and how well the chamber of the rifle is able to align the bullet,...

    An old High Power, 200 yard, target load is 48.0 gr 4064 with a 168 gr match bullet. I believe I got that from Ken Waters. In my Rem 7600, I was able to 100 yard,5 shot, 5/8 groups, with that load. Frank

    Also for those wanting to measure the bore and groove of the 303, this may help you. If the barrel is within tolerance, note that measuring on the corners (red line) will give to the groove size. If you have pin gages, you can verify the corner...

    larry, larry, larry, again, you try to mislead. CBA does not shoot 5, five shot groups or one 10 shot group. Both group averages are for 20 shots! They shoot 4, five shot groups and average them, in the 10 shot groups they shoot two, ten shot...
