Thread: Black Bear load for Finn M-39

    Black Bear load for Finn M-39

    Howdy ,,, looking to use my Finn for early season black bear in New England this fall. I want to use a 314299 as I have had good results with that boollit in the rifle before. !6 grains of 2400 has always been good shooter, but I would like to push it a bit hotter. Any ideas ?

    Thanks in advance ,,

    Not sure what caliber your using (7.62x54) I would guess. but hate assume anything, could use more 2400 for more volicity,
    A slower powder also can be used for more volicity and lower pressures.
    Not sure on your alloy, softer will expand, harder can go thur with no expansion.
    Distance of shot is important. Few more details would be helpful

    I have had good luck with The same boolit and loading it with RL-7 ( I think around 30 Grains )
    My loading Data is still packed away from a recent move, but I think info is in the Lymann Cast Bullet Manual.
