Anybody else have more reports from deer hunting with these?
I see many optimal loads are well in excess of 2.260. I don't have that option with a variety of non-PRI mags available, so I'm sticking with 2.260 -.010 for a COAL.
Does anyone have any specific loads for COAL of 2.260 with Re7 and SSA brass? My tube is one of Constructor's 16inch Melanite coated 5R, 11T.
28gr RE-7+450 primer+Horn brass+2.26+16"arp barrel=2875fps
28gr sounds about right. 27.6gr gave no pressure signs whatsoever. I'll be using Rem 7 1/2 primers 'cause that's what I've got. I'll try a few tomorrow and see what I get... Hopefully it will be dry enough to set up the Chrony.
What kind of accuracy did you get?
I got best accuracy loaded out to 2.295 with 28.8gr, I wouldn't go that high loaded to 2.60 though. Shot .75" every time with my old barrel.
