    Those of you running Redding type S FL Bushing dies; what bushing are you guys using .288 or .289?

    My loaded necks are .289 so I'm using a .288 bushing. YMMV though



    I have 300 pieces of Lapua brass all the same lot number and loaded neck is very consistant at .289 to .2895. Other lot numbers may vary in thickness.

    40gr. H4350, 140gr. Berger Hybrid, CCI 450 primer

    This load bugholes out of my 27in. Bartlein barrel... I don't have excess to a Chrono yet although...

    41gr- 41.5gr. H4350 is a bugholer also, just find your barrels best .1 increment within that window and you will be happy....

    I use the 288 with Berger bullets but gonna switch to 289 with the 123 Scenars as they seem to be a little fatter than the Bergers,,

    I kind of figured it would be between the .288 and .289. Went ahead and ordered my Redding FL Die Set and both of the mentioned bushings. Thanks guys!

    Has anyone noticed anything different between CCI 400, 450m and BR4? Are you guys able to get low SD numbers using the 400s, 450s, vs BR4s?

    Running 130gr AR Hybrids out of a 23" bartlein with 4166 (generic varget from what i'm told) i pushed to 37.8 but got pressure signs. Highest i saw with no can was 2890s with 37.4/37.6. Settled on 36.3 because my previous load 36.2 and from 36.2-36.4 only had a 6fps shift. Netting me 2830ish IIRC. I have several friends using 130 hybrids and varget you should be good to go.

            You might have to push to get 2900 with varget or 4350 but it is attainable assuming you have the barrel length. I don't think i'll ever switch from the 6.5x47 what it lacks in powder capacity it makes up for in case design. I see people constantly pushing the round beyond what it's supposed to be able to take and get great brass life. Not to say i condone pushing well beyond the limits but the cartridge just doesn't seem to mind what i'd venture to guess is north of 70k PSI.

            With RL17 from what i understand it should be pretty easy to achieve.

              this new rifle will be a 23" hawkhill so i may be expecting a little to much from the results you posted but we will see...if i cant get at least 2850 from the 130s ill switch over to the 140s which im pretty sure i can get 2750ish out of...like i say ill post up some results as soon as i get out.
              thanks again for the info.

                I was able to get 3000 fps with 130 vldís with RL17 out of my 24 inch barrel. Load was extremely accurate but RL17 is extremely temp sinsitive and turned out to be pretty much useless for me. For comparison I got 2860 with the 130ís out of both varget and h4350 both.

                    Sounds good PM me and i'll add you on facebook or something.

                    So RL17 is indeed temp sensitive?

                          Iím shooting them and love them, my current load is
                          37.5 gr varget
                          cci 450 primers
                          .030 jump
                          2766 fps
                          SD 6.7 for 20 rounds
                          5 round groups in the mid .2ís

                          ive used this load now for about 1500 rounds and it has worked very well for me in competition, both Fclass and one PRS match. My experience with them has the the BC is actually a touch higher than advertised. If you donít want them holler at me and Iíll take em off your hands. Also they like To jump and see ponder base to ogive than the hybrids so I wasnít able to get the velocity with H4350 that I could with the hybrids which is why I switched over to varget

                              I think youíll like them, Iíve won several Fclass matches with them at 600 and 1000. That 37.5 gr load is a touch warm so start low. Last match I shot in I used new brass and had a slight bit of sticky bolt.
