Re: Speer Gold Dot 150 BLK

M.S. gives 1850 avg for the GD in 18" 1:10 barrel - 19gr cfeblk. I find the GD with (evidently) softer jacket is not as accurate as the 150SPP from hornady. You might try about 3 more grains of powder if you're going to use CFE. I find 1/2-3/4 MOA more than adequate for a hunting bullet, are you sa...

Re: Someone please help me understand these numbers!

Got a good deal on a bunch of speer 125gr TNT rounds and so I've been working on some loads. Went to the range yesterday and had something very weird happen once I got into the hotter loads. H110 powder, WSR primers, and once fired frontier brass for all rounds w/o crimp. Shot out of an 8.5" novesk...

Re: Someone please help me understand these numbers!

Back to the actual question.

Drop 19 grains in a fired case, rest a bullet on the powder and measure.

What’s the length?

Re: Someone please help me understand these numbers!

Yup. You were into the lands. Higher pressure. I’ve never used that bullet, does it jam that short? No idea. But I sounded confident, didn't I. :lol: Plus it's a Noveske. Jackass, you had me measuring bullets. :oops: It’s short for weight, a bit shorter than a 110 VMax or Varmageddon. Pretty sure t...

First, does anybody have any explanation as to why I had such a large increase in velocity with the slightly longer 18.8gr rounds?

Re: First time reloading 300blk

I don't have as much experience with Reloader 7 as N120, but would likely choose N120 for better performance across a large weight and speed of bullets. It will do better with heavier bullets. Here the Vihtavouri powders cost about 50% more, but for $115 per pound I might try match heads :shock: . B...

Re: 125gr Speer TNT question

Check your crimp or neck tension, make sure the necks are clean.

More load data, 19 grains with H110/296 is no problem if you work up to it.

Re: First time reloading 300blk

I have never been happy with the accuracy of Lil’gun, but some people swear by it. It will be hard to get one powder to perform well with both light and heavy bullets. Powder good for light bullets will develop pressure early with heavy bullets or have low case capacity effecting both velocity and a...

I know that I have been a bit slack lately, but no love for a fellow NC Member? 8) I’m not from Note Carlina, but I was wondering what rock you’ve been under. :P The only reason this thread didn’t have threes times the action was timing and shame. Poor timing when you did it, and no one else wanted...
