Re: Wolf 300 Blackout Ammo 145 gr

Went to the range yesterday.

The 145 gr Wolf ammo averaged 1915 fps. 16 inch barrel. All rounds were within 5 fps of each other.

Groups at 1.5 inches at 50 yards with a 3x Primary Arms scope.

Looks good to go.

Cases are Berdan primed.

Cost was $.48 a round before shipping.

Re: Berry's plated 150 gr bullet

I recently loaded up some of the 30-30 RS bullets with a start load of WW296. COL was set at 1.950. Perfect feeding and function.

Also tried 1.900 and it worked with my AR just fine.

Re: Wolf 300 Blackout Ammo 145 gr

Cost on the ammo was $.48 a round. I also saw some for 500 rounds at $399.00. Shot some of the ammo at the range last Thursday. All functioned and seemed normal power. Went into 3 inches at 100 yards, with a 3x scope that was new to me. I was unable to chrono it that day. Will report more from the n...

Re: New to reloading / questions

For a cartridge gauge. I like the Lyman. For various reasons, here is what I use: RCBS Small Base sizer with the expander ball removed. Lyman "M" die to expand the neck. Hornady Bullet Seater. Lee Factory Collet Crimp for a light crimp. For a trimmer, the Lyman EZEE Trim works well. You also need an...

Re: Wolf 300 Blackout Ammo 145 gr

I have received the ammo. Ran 40 rounds through the gauge and all OK.

Will be going to the range Wednesday and will report.

Re: Neck Reamer?

RCBS and Forster have reamers. Quite a bit of time involved.

Thanks for the info.

Re: Help with bullet weight and uses.

Your rifle will tell you what it likes. The Speer TNT is popular for an all around bullet. Can be had in 500 round boxes. Good place to start. I picked the 147-150 grain bullets as some are available in bulk. Speer makes a 150 gr Gold Dot 300 Blackout bullet that is reportedly good for deer and expa...

Re: Sierra 30 cal 150 gr Varminter Bullet

Called Sierra. They said the bullet is new and they have not had time to load the 300 Blackout yet. They suggested 2.10 for COL, to try. Also, to use their 300 Blackout loading data for 150 gr bullets.
