Re: Berger 210VLDs Loads for F/TR

throat length determines available powder charge and pressure
long throats required for max velocity
If a 155 throat then ???
1/11 possibly marginal twist if at higher altitudes / lower density

Re: .308 F-Open/F/TR Projectiles

You are saying you have a spare barrel, what twist is it? If it is 10", then the 200s which everyone else mentioned would be good. ( I am trying the 200 Jacks which are available from QRA Qstore). The 200 Jacks and the latest 200 Sierras have better BC than the 215s and will have slightly less...

Re: Tikka T3 actions for F class standard

I’ve gone from trued Remington, to a pierce temp clone, then full stainless lbrp multiflat, then Barnard and now back to tikka. Only due to being an adult apprentice and money is tight. In all honesty I could run a hv on the tikka which might be less weight, but this rifle balances out really nice ...

Re: 6.5 Creedmore and Re16?

Cheers Mozzie Mozzie I did not get anything to write home about with 136L either. Both the 120L and 123 are looking excellent with the La...

Re: 6.5 Creedmore and Re16?

I may be wrong, but would the small primers in the lapua brass, drop the velocity. I was chatting to a guy at Raglan and he suggested that using magnum primers may offer an extra 50fps over a normal match primer, though I haven't had the chance to test this yet. I have not tested this in the 6.5 CM...

Re: 6.5 Creedmore and Re16?

A bit off topic but.... ShaneG I finally got the 6.5 Tikka to the range with some factory ammo...the Federal 140gn at 100y was pretty good in a little reprieve from a gusty crosswind at Belmont SSAA!DBEC9D76-D8B0-4CCB-8E11-7F6A2A7BA7D5.jpeg Hey Peter Try the Fusion if possible as well?

Re: 6.5 Creedmore and Re16?

I use 140gr ELD match in Norma Brass. At the moment I'm using 42.1grs of RL16 and get around 2900fps. The SD is also quite low as well. The hottest load I've tried is 43.2grs and there was no pressure signs so could probably go further. https://sierrabulletsblog.com/2017/01/09/sierra-bullets-6-5-cr...

Re: Benchmark 8208 / 155.5 / 308 FTR

My .02C - my go to powder for 155gr in 308 has been 2206H. I feel 8208 is a tad fast in burn rate.
Any of the heavier pills such as Juggs it becomes 2208 obviously and my opinion on 2208 and 155 is that it is too slow for that combo.
FWIW
