As the weather is cracking at the moment I have been putting some of the loads that I was working on over the crono and its been a bit of a surprise. Having eventually got some VitN160 I found a load that is supremely accurate which consists of 44.6g Vit160 under a 123g Amax, however when I put twenty over the crono I found that my average velocity was pretty disappointing at 2432fps. That is probably enough to ensure good expansion on the anticipated target but still a concern, especially with a 123g bullet. Even when pushing the load to 47.6g which is one grain over recommended with no pressure signs I still only got 2607fps although groups are consistent. The other surprise was Reloader 22. Working on long range vermin loads I found that 49g of Rel22 over a 140G Amax whilst very accurate had a spread of over 200fps. That was with careful handloading and keeping the ammo out of the sun ect. I have read that reloader 22 has a bit of a reputation for being inconsistent, however I expected that to be from batch to batch. Just out of interest has Anyone else got good load data for the 6,5x55? Just to add before someone pipes in about Amax being a tgt bullet, I defy anyone to tell the difference between Vmax and Amax on flesh and blood.
