I haven't shot any H1000 in mine, only RL26 and Retumbo. I wound up with a good load using Retumbo, about a grain under what Hornady gives as max with the 140 ELDM. It shoots very well. My barrel is a Kreiger 8T finished at 28" and wearing an Area 419 brake. I can spot my own hits it is so tame and takes exactly 7 mils dial up for 1,000 yards (100 yard zero).
I have shot it from 93F to as low as 48F. I have had 0 issues!!! Actually i worked up my loads in the 90s now in the 40s I'm running a higher velocity. My barrel has sped up for the 3rd time now lol....
Anyone reloading Hornady 143gr ELD-X ?
I worked up a load close to max in my rifle, Tikka T3, rock creek med palma 1-8" @ 26".
58.6gr - H1000
143gr - ELD-X seated ten thous off the lands
CCI- 250 primers getting 3045 fps
Question is when I go over that velocity bullets seem to lose stability with no noticeable pressure and start to rip the target a little, at or below that velocity I get nice round holes, anyone else seeing this happening?
