It has taken a while, but today I loaded my first 2400 in a rifle cartridge. I have loaded many pounds in magnum sixguns, but never in a rifle. I know it is a favorite of some here. I started with the magic 16 grains. Anybody have a better idea on charge weight.
I discovered a trove of bullets I cast in 1984 last week. I have about 1K of the critters. The bullet is Lyman 311467U and cast from straight linotype.
The dimensions are sorta funky as the run .302 at the base of the nose. .304 on the top band, .305 on the next band, and .309 on the rest.
Using Buckshots neato nose sizing die, I sized the nose and top two bands .300. A gas check, some lube and a trip though a .309 die finished the task on the bullets.
Unless the weather turns bad Friday, will see me at the range. I am taking my 1965 vintage Model 70 for the 30-06, a Krag to try 322407 Mod, and my old/new Winchester 94 in 32 Win. Spl.
