Re: Help with bullet weight and uses.

Back after finishing bathroom remodel....Sig220 mentioned my favorite powder with 110-125 gr bullets: 300-MP. H110 and 296 are great, but 300-MP has just a bit more safety in the pressure curve...and is clean burning compared to the above. What can I say, I'm a fan. The 125 TNT is a nicely accurate ...

Re: Help with bullet weight and uses.

I seldom offer a answer to one of the most common questions here. No offense meant, but ask your question via Google or search by subject on Youtube. Great way to start your knowledge base for 300 BLK, and you will spend hours sorting out what others have done. This is all the time I now have, perha...

Re: Please allow me to introduce myself

Welcome aboard! I also shoot Steel Challenge and USPSA, a 50+ year hand loader and shooter. Recent dumb injury has slowed me down most of last year and then the dreaded Covid stuff came upon us this season. I have built some pistols in BLK and 5.56 and sure enjoy the compact units. Be well and vigil...

Re: Load Question

As one can come to expect here, experienced help is always available. I read these posts knowing my hunting with the BLK has been limited to ground squirrels and steel plates. Expansion is obviously not a topic that demonstrates my life long addition to load work, but I sure pay attention when Delle...

Re: Acme 135 Gr RNFP coated bullets

Your first concern at that OAL and flat point is will they feed. I always seat a bullet in a empty test case and run from the magazine. Some work and if not a single shot guy could certainly use them. If you've checked all that then carry on 8) It took some fiddling to get a flat point 160 gr cast/c...

Re: New to 300, looking for reload info please help

Welcome to the 300 BLK world. I suggest going back into some of the older threads in this forum, considerable info to sort thru. It's time well spent and helps those trying to help others ask the questions in a way that has the info needed to get the guidance. Some dang fine and smart guys here, mos...

Re: Handloads for Sig Rattler

I use it with good results in supers and fired in the RARR. Compressed and a magnum primer took care of some the burn issues with supers with 140-160 gr bullets in the 10.5 inch pistol. I'm still working on which bullet/charge proves acceptable overall. Subs really work fine, erratic numbers and dir...

Re: IMR 4227 for supers and subs???

"I tend to have better luck with the magnum primers and double base ball powders like 296 and 1680"....Dellet

This is my experience as well, particularly with compressed supers loaded with 1680. H110/296 are used with SR-M's for best results. The CCI 450 is my favorite.

Re: N120 and 150 - 180 grain subs

I fired some Lee 200 gr cast and coated in a 10.5" pistol today. 9.4 gr N120 in once fired FC brass. Avg velocity in the 16" RARR was 1052, didn't get the pistol numbers due to a storm blowing in. I finished up the last 5 rounds busting 2" size rocks at 50 yds. I also tried some Lee 180's cast/coate...

Re: 168 grain speer gold dot

Rebel said what I was thinking. Despite all the fuss about 1680 being 'loud' for subsonic loads ( I disagree ), it really has no equal with many bullet weights. Many of the finest loads through my rifle and pistol start with 1680. That stuff seems to thrive on some compression. He's right, you need ...
