Try some out with 140's and let us know what happens!What are the different powders you guys are using for this... I have everything except powder. Every where around me only has 50bmg powder on the shelves...
And has this happened to you? What makes this caliber different? I turn onto the shoulder about .020" on all my caliber I turn the necks on. Please explain if you have had personal experience with this.Just a note to the guys turning their own necks. Don't get into the shoulder to far or the necks will separate after firing.
Also a note on trim lenght
The reamer print state 2.025. But i see people trimming form 2.010 to 2.015 and even 2.025?
2.025 isnt that too close to the reamer spec?
Of the top of my head as I drive to work is this. Max for my gun was 61.3-61.5 grains. And the OAL is around 2.885-2.9My GAP 6.5 SAUM should be here in a couple months, and I finally scored some H1000 yesterday. I still can't find any 130 Hunting VLDs, but my local shop had some 140 Hunting VLDs, so I picked up 100. My brass is Remington 300 from Copper Creek and I have CCI Magnum primers.
1.) What is the recommended max charge of H1000 under the 140s in Remington cases?
2.) What COAL with the 140 Hunting VLDs?
I want to have 50 loaded up and ready to go when the rifle shows up and could not find definitive data for this combo.
I will take bets that you will use that same reamer with the longer throat, I know I would. I would say you got your bang for the buck on that one and then some! Congrats
Can't gripe too much.....this tube has over 2700 rounds through it. This 50 pieces of brass has 23 firings. I'll have it re-barreled after this hunting season.
