Maker 85grain TREX

Post by bmd2013 » Wed Mar 03, 2021 9:37 pm

Hello, I just picked up a bunch of the 85 grain maker TREX bullets, and am looking for load data. I have H110,1680, Lil Gun, AA#9, Benchmark, and 2230. Any ideas on where to start? Looking at the big spreadsheet of data, I see a load for 300MP which is pretty close to Lil Gun and H110, any suggestions? Thanks- Ben

I prefer 296/H110.

Generally better accuracy, higher velocity with less pressure than #9. Most important is the accuracy.

Start around 21-21.5 grains.

That's my goal too. I'll share some data once I have it. I just picked a lab radar and plan to see how fast I can get these guys screaming out of my honey badger barrel.

I thought I posted pics of that bullet in gel in the Maker Bullet thread a couple years ago, but did not see them this morning.

I will look later and if i cant find them, try to shoot a couple this weekend.
