For 6.5cm and similar calibers. Powder Valley is calling it the greatest invention since Varget. Those are big shoes to fill. We will see if it lives up to the hype
Reduced Copper Fouling
low published speeds are nothing new.for the 6.5cm their published speeds seem a little slow.
max powder is 43.5g producing 2772 fps. I guess that is out of a 24: barrel but I'm getting 2800 fps out of my 26" with 41.8 grs of r16.
I'll be testing it in a 6BR once I get my hands on someI know jackcrap about picking powders for cartridges. I just go with tried and true and stick with it. (have only loaded for two calibers, just started a year ago)
i've seen data for dasher, and a guy trying it in a BRA.
would this be worth trying in a straight BR w/112g bullets? i'm using H4895 now.
Did you talk to Powder Valley and ask how long it would be? I’m gonna be doing a new load work up on my gun anyways since I just got my suppressor and wouldn’t mind trying this, just don’t wanna have to wait a few months.Just pulled the trigger on 8#’s to see how it is. On back order but shouldn’t be long before more on the shelf...
Here we go again with load prepping and determining what’s best. Have a real good load for my to different 6.5 CM platforms..
oh well more excuses to shoot more...
I'm waiting for you to get me some numbers for the Valkyrie and .220 Thunderbolt, please!
There's some info here for the 224VI’d like to give it a try in .224 Valkyrie. Got a origin 26” barreled action on its way.
What was case fill at 38gr, was it compressed?I ran an impromptu velocity ladder just to get to see how this stuff performs.
