Re: 266 grain cast bullet, the Dolomite special

Sounds like I may be done with these then. It already takes nearly 2 hours for 50 rounds, and thats without adding another handful of steps. I don't have that kind of time. I would suggest you give up all cast and coated bullets then, or get used to shooting patterns rather than groups. Most people...

Re: 266 grain cast bullet, the Dolomite special

It might be worth a try to load some with 12.2-12.6 at 2.100” and see what happens. Good sir I have news. But it isn't delightful heh. 12.2 averaged just a hair under 1k for 10 rounds but SD/ES were still pretty vomitous (sd over 40). 12.4 was supersonic for all but one shot, but sd came way down t...

Re: 266 grain cast bullet, the Dolomite special

If you are not compressing the CFE yet, keep adding powder. it actually works ok with this bullet. I think I took it to about 14 grains and close to 1500 fps and never had a pressure indication, so don't be afraid to try and move up to 1000 fps. I think i'm just more confused as to why such a decen...

Re: 266 grain cast bullet, the Dolomite special

If you need any help let me know. Thanks boss. They look and load fantastic. Sadly with CFE BLK (11.6, 11.8, 12.0) all three powder weights were within 3fps of 950 for an average (5 rounds of each).....and printing 3-4" at 50 yards. This is out of my 10.5" SBR, unsuppressed (until I verified they'd...

Re: 266 grain cast bullet, the Dolomite special

My sweet wooden crate of 100 came in last night. Will see about preppong some brass tonight but I have a weekend getaway coming up I still haven't even begun to pack for...so that takes precedence. I like that they're noticeably shorter than 208 ELD, as that indicates they may stabilize out of my 6...

Re: Hans Solo Blackout?

what kinda velocity are you getting with the 208s? care to share some of the load details with us? those are a good projo... shouldnt be too hard to get them to stabilize in a 1:7 twist.... Theyre right at 1k fps with imr4198 out of my 10.5" sbr (shortest i can go and maintain MD's ridiculous oal s...

Re: Hans Solo Blackout?

As an update, 50 yard holes from 208s were a little eggy, so I'm not keen on suppressing those. Loaded some 168 BTHPs to subsonic velocities and they shot great actually. So I'm keeping the barrel and will be turning it down to lighten the front end. Also came across a SMOKIN deal on some finish-ble...
