Looking at getting a load worked up for my .22-.250 my one professor called a guy who knows some good ones, well he was scribbling all over this paper, with different loads and powders.... Now the problem is, decoding this mess.
It may help to mention, I'm planning to do longer range shooting on coyotes. Anyhow, I think the one combo is:
"Hornady 55 grain balistic tip" then in parentasis it says "(43grs-48grs) slow powder 47g"
Now in the middle of the paper it has "dupont 4320 - 4350" with circles and arrows at the 4350 with the words slow burning and less pressure attached to the arrows now in the upper left it says "powder h-4895 and 4064"
It's a mess so help me if you can. I'd appreciate it.
Buy a reloading manual. Lot's of loads & much safer.
How much are you hands, eyes, and face worth?
More than $25?? That's all a manual will cost.
If nothing else, you can go online to the powder of bullet manufacturer's sites.
Some of them will give you a "potentially most accurate load".
Besides, what shoots well and is safe in MY rifle, may not be in yours.
This is especially true of max/near max loads.
Heh, I guess I should be more clear, he has all the load information and books, however, I couldn't get ahold of him to find out what to buy. So I was trying to piece it together and figure out what to buy. Believe me. I'm pretty attached to all my limbs and body parts, don't worry.
