Work up to this load in your rifle.


Great info! How long is your barrel?

1919 Carl Gustav...

30 grains RL 7, 160 RN... kicks less than a 243, or feels like it, with the original factory military stock...
29 inch barrel runs it right at 2350 fps.

30 grains of RL 7 or 4198, and a 120 ballistic tip....that is running right at 2500 fps..

both are pretty darn accurate....recoil is almost non existent with the factory stock..

I tried 50.0 RL26 with a 130 accubond in Lapua brass in my tikka Swede. 5 shot avg 2770 fps. Tula LRM primers. I could probably add a couple grains. Barrel gets real hot very quickly with RL26.

Barrel only has 25 shots through it, do Tikka barrels speed up after 150-200 shots like a Bartlein does?

Not sure about Tikka barrels but the 130 load sounds like an easy shooting combo. I played a little 26 and 130 ABs and they were quite speedy.

Tried the 120 E-tip at 3.00 OAL and got a 4” “group” out of the same rifle. Gonna seat them deeper and try again. RL26 might not be the best powder for the 120, I may try to find some RL16.

Didn’t run any 120’s that I can remember with 26, but it might be okay with those monos and a long drop tube. I’d bet you’d get some smoking speeds though.

Yeah, I can’t get the 120 ETip any shorter than 2.87 with 51.0 of 26 so they’re definitely compressed.

Thanks, that's about what I thought it would look like. Looks like 7828 would be a pretty decent place to start. Have quite a bit left over from loading .270 Win, always worked good there too.




will be curious to read your results. Any follow up would be greatly appreciated.

Bravo
