I find this interesting due to this load and velocity being nearly identical to the load a .260 Rem I had preferred. Must be a common accuracy node with 130s in the 2900s.I did some ladder testing this weekend with Lapua Brass this weekend!
wind 10-12mph - 1:00
Action: Trued and BP R700 - no bushing on firing pin
Barrel: Krieger 24" Rem Varmint
Stock: Manners T6A
Suppressor: TBAC Ultra 7 in .30cal.
Powder: 41.0 - 45.0 H4350
Primer: CCI 400
Bullet: 130gn Target Hybrid AR
The winning load was:
Average Velocity 2986fps
There is the faintest sign of the extractor mark but there was no sticky bolt lift or other signs of over pressure. Little bit of primer back flow on all spent primers. I'm going to roll with it for now. I had another node around the 2900fps mark so I might back down to that when it gets to 100 degrees in Texas. Happy to add more upon request.
