    .45 Colt 250gn Hi-Tek coated bullets.

    I havent tried them in the 45 colt yet but I tried them in my 44 mag handgun and I like them. My handgun is ported and I always got some leading that was a pain to remove I havent noticed any with the Hi-tek bullets

    Powder for. 45 colt.

    I just recently started to relaod for the 45 colt. I dont use it for hunting and I really just wanted to duplicate some factory 250 coated lead and plated stuff. I found 8 and 8.5 grains of universal worked great. That seemed a tad stouter than the factory stuff but had the same POI, I didnt...

    68gr vs. 75gr

    My testing mirrors RldrNewby. With the 68, 8208 and Nammo brass I thought 22.8 to 23.3 was where it was at. Out of an 18" the numbers for 23.3 was 2737 SD of 7.5 unfortunately I have exhausted my supply of 8208 so its back to Varget. The 75, 23.2 grains of 8208 in Lc brass ran 2680 and the SD...

    Ultramax Ammunition

    Hornady 75 bthp, 23.2 grains of 8208 in a LC case gave me good accuracy, SD in the teens and velocity was 2670 fps out of an 18" barrel Varget gave me a little trouble using Nammo brass due to its low case capacity but 23.3 was accurate. I was also having chrono issues, velocity was in the low...

    Ultramax Ammunition

    W748 could work, I tested it out with the 68/69 weight bullets and found it worked ok. For some reason I never tested it with the 75/77 weight bullets. AA2520 worked real good with both the 68/69 & 75/77 weight bullets, do you have any other powders?

    60gr Tmk 223 won't group. Help

    One more thought, have you checked the seating depth in respect to the lands? If not with one of those fancy tools that I dont own, the split case method perhaps?

    60gr Tmk 223 won't group. Help

    Is the tac charge high to anyone else? I only have the hornady data in front of me and it max's out at 24.7 with the 60/62 class weight bullets. (tmk not included). All the powders you mentioned are spherical and may work better with a magnum, or rem 7 1/2. But you obviously got the 2520 to...

    Dear Larry

    man midway has always been pretty competitive with their pricing but recently the prices on bullets have increased 30% while other sites have not. for example the 55gr vmax is $28.99 per hundred while midsouth is selling them for $21.49, thats a big difference. The speer 55 speer tnt just went...

    My latest package from Midway

    Ive had same problem with midway, and Its not just the carriers fault. All the need to do is put boxes of bullets into a plastic bag then put them into your box. I purchased some cast bullets from midway that I normally order directly from the manufacturer. When they come from the...

    Load Opinions?

    not sure what brass your using but with winchester I use 44 grains of 4064 and 45 grains of varget seated at 2.820. So maybe try a little higher. Also you must have a longer barrel than I do (20") because my 4064 load shoots around 2660 and my barget load is 2650

    147 grain in 308

    I agree with Doom & Cr1775, Ive only used the Hornady 150 fmj and I make it easy with a drop charge of 44.5 grains and W748. I use the IMR and Varget for other stuff.

    Ramshot Big Game

    Ramshot powders sometimes have an Accurate brand twin. Possibly AA2700 but Im speculating on this. See if the data is the same? Otherwise I would agree with jet-lagged about using the 165 data as a guide. In a bolt gun you should be able to tell when your getting into trouble.

    New to reloading question...22-250, Tikka Compact

    I think 37-38 grains of h380 and a 52g bullet is a "classic" 22-250 load. I never tried h380 and I cannot attest to its fouling characterstics but I know several people who use that powder and bullet combo.
