Remember Me? Page 1 of 2 1 2 Last Jump to page: Results 1 to 20 of Thread: Hard cast PC'd 55 gr. Thread Tools Show Printable Version. Hard cast PC'd 55 gr. I started casting about some months back and probably will forever be experimenting.
I have WW CF I do powder coat twice. My question s is: Is resizing necessary? And can anyone tell me what the starting load would be using H? Yes, I know there's a possibility of leading both barrel and gas tube. I GC mine as well as PC, they are The Hodgdon scale I have shows H at OK well on to order gas checks.
Do you mind telling me where you got your data from for the IMG ? I just loaded some Lee c boolits over 18, From what I've been able to find around here starting load of 18gn of these medium burning powders is where to start and working up from there. I also have some Hodgdon varget that I am going to load with these same loads.
I am using a 16" carbine gas length " bbl. Best load so far was H Shot 2" yrs, and cycled the rifle. Now we getting somewhere. Are you using gc's? I'm shooting the noe 62gr fn with GC powder coated HF sprayed out of a 16" dpms I loaded 19 - 23gr H Got the best groups around 2inches at 21 gr which ended up being around fps. I also tried xbr but was getting pressure signs earlier so stopped playing with it.Hornady Manufacturing Company develops and publishes reloading data for the Handbook of Cartridge Reloading.

The outside dimensions are the same. It's the thickness of the brass, and the chamber that makes the difference. And that is where the problems are going to come in, thicker walls mean a lower case capacity and higher pressures. I have heard of that one but never been to it.
I have a couple of buddies that have. Being I live on the NW side of Nashville there isnt anything public within about 45 minutes. I did get lucky a few years ago and get into a sportsmans club about 5 miles from the house. There are normally a few shooters there on the weekend but I get every other Monday off and often go there and have the enitre place to myself.
Its about the same at SE in Chapel Hill. I like the carbine bay and the long range up to yards. I have heard they are also working on a one mile lane. That being said it is close to an hour and a half for me to get down there so I would not go more than maybe once or twice a year with everything else I have going on. I have a gun I have taken to but I have a couple of others I would like to test at that range and would like to work up different loads for my PR testing dope and stuff like that.
I can go about an hour and get into Montgomery County but they only go out to and dont like my bringing my steel. I hate shooting paper at long ranges. There are lots of people that drive two hours or more. It is worth it to join. You can't beat the price with all they offer, plus there are lots of really great shooters to learn from.
It is also fun to shoot next to the Murfreesboro sniper team. I also took the carbine class and it is worth the time and money. I plan to take more classes when I have time.I have finally located some H I did search here and found some interesting info on heavier weight bullets. I will be loading 55 gr bullets and will be chronographing my work. My version Bushy twist rate is16" barrel. An aside I had never considered this powder for the x But low and behold it's listed in the Hogdon Load Data Center.
I unfortunately or fortunately I guess since I do have a job :cool: work most weekends, so I haven't yet had the opportunity to meet Mr. David at the local gun shows to be able to pick up components from him One day I'm really just seeking personal preference loads or an quirks folks may have encountered. It's my first go with this particular powder. I've had AA on backorder for more than a friggin' year now But I appreciate learning what I can from the members here.
I was only shooting at 50 yards and not shooting for accuracy. Some rounds were off sandbags and some loosely "propped" by my elbows. All rounds clustered at point of aim This group was one of my elbow propped groups, so I am looking forward to seeing what this load actually does when tested for accuracy at and yards. I want to say that we used As i remember, ya could lay a dime over a 5 shot groupI have a press coming and I am trying to get powder while it is still available.
Does that matter?
Tikka T3 .223 load data? Any suggestions?
Also what loads do you recommend? I mostly do target shooting with my AR's. Both are chambered in wylde. I will most likely just get the Dillon super swage and a Lyman electric case trimmer. Cases don't have to be seated multiple times right? My dad's AR will be a 16" mid length and mine is a 18" rifle length.
Both with Epsilon VG6 brakes on them. Not sure if that is relevant. So either check every piece or run a trimmer pass. Because most of my brass was 5. Do some searching and checking out what others do. Also an annealer comes in handy. I'd buy the 55gr soft point from Sage's Reloading. I first started with the Hornady lock n load single stage. Then got the bug bad Headstamp doesn't matter much in.
Clean, lube, size, swage, trim, load. If loading 55gr. H is a great powder. Most accurate fmj load I ever shot was pushed by Benchmark.63gr SMP H335 test
There are a Ton of suitable powders crack a manual, you'll be able to find something. In my rifles, I'll use two different accuracy loads, and there isn't much of a noticeable difference in groups at y.
One is maximum effort and maximum accuracy sub MOA. The other is lower effort intended to be cheaper in time and money and shoots almost as well. I don't reload 55gr FMJ.We are all fully familiar with just what a useful cartridge the. For a handloader, the. Depending on your rifle, you might want to take a couple different approaches to your reloading technique.
Loading for the ARs — and any autoloader for that matter — might warrant the use of small base resizing dies, to shrink any fired brass back to specs, all the way to the base of the cartridge, for proper feeding.
One of the obvious allures of the. That military ammunition 5.
That will increase pressure, sometimes to a dangerous level, so you absolutely need to sort your cases prior to any load development.
Both sporting and military cases can be used, but with different powder charges. Bullet Options The. Twist rate is also going to play a big part in the equation. If you have a rifle with one of the slower twist rates — the inch twist, like the. The grain Nosler Ballistic Tip Varmint can reach over 3, fps to truly generate the red mist.
But, the increase in ballistic coefficient figures will make distant shots much easier on a windy day. The classic grain pills are a good all-around choice for any hunting — they offer a balance of downrange trajectory and wind deflection values — and will give excellent accuracy.
Theand grain match bullets have some impressive figures, as well as performance, just so long as your rate of twist can stabilize the longer projectiles. Norma B, normally reserved for bigger cases, can also be a wonderful choice for heavier bullets like the Hornady grain Match and its ilk, as can IMR Hunting The longer bullets, designed with terminal performance in mind, can also be used for optimal hunting performance on big game with the.
The grain and grain Swift Scirocco II, with a good, thick jacket and boat tail, and a polymer tip to initiate expansion, makes a good choice for a hunting bullet. The grain Hornady GMX, a sweet monometal spitzer bullet, will fit the bill perfectly as well, as there is no jacket or core to separate.

All of these will take up room in the case, much like the longer match bullets, so keep an eye on load density, so as not to break the grain structure by over-compressing the powder charge. I strongly suggest, and it applies even more to the heavier bullets, that you use the data for the particular bullet, from the bullet manufacturer, as the conformation and construction of the bullet can have a dramatic effect on pressure levels and powder charges. It is, most definitely, a top-notch coyote rifle, and, if the small-bore target game is your thing, it can be extremely accurate.
You should be shamed, tarred, and feathered for perpetuating the myth that 5. This is a flat out lie. Indeed, unless you get some oddball European cases, current military brass tends to have more internal volume than. You would know this if you had done ANY basic research on the subject. The blackout boys have pretty much destroyed this myth through the brass conversion process, with LC brass being preferred due to its consistency and.
Other brass measures from. Use of the water weight volume testing method also destroys this myth, with LC having the largest internal volume, and Lapua the smallest, among 12 cases tested 5 military, 7 commercial.
