going thru data, i see with a 130 gr bullet, 4831 seems to get the best velo's, as i'm thinking of using 130 barnes's.

i tried to do a search, but the search function doen't give a lot of help with what i typed in.

so, i've got a 264 inbound, and was wondering who's using what loads, and what's gettin killed with it.

i get better results from IMR 7828 in the .264

my 130 TSX load is 65 grains IMR 7828 and get ~3250 fps from a 26" barrel. this is 75-100 fps more than i could get from either IMR or H 4831. as always, WORK UP TO MAX LOADS. i'd start at 60 grains and work up. pressures rise fast in this one, and some of my rifles won't take max loads.

i've shot everything from rodents to elk with this load. normally don't waste Barnes bullets on vermin, but sometimes i can't help it.

I'm using imr-7828 with 130 grain accubond. 7828 is the best powder i've found for the 264

264 Win Mag = Slow powder

These are loads with 140gr Accubonds from a 26" 1-8 twist in my rifle. COL 3.495

74gr H870 = 3220 FPS
64gr RL25 = 3120 FPS
65gr Retumbo = 3100 FPS
77gr US869 = 3080 FPS
76gr AA8700 = 3080 FPS

50BMG & the new RL50 may be good as well.

RL 25 is the cat's meow in this crtridge! I reached 3350 with the 125 NP and 3200 with the 140's.

I admit even though the speed is about 100 FPS slower than H870 with a 140gr, it is very accurate & cleaner burning

i've got lots of rl25

i was thinking a barnes ttsx/tsx would be a great all around bullet for whatever i pointed it at.

but a 140 at that speed may just do.

now to start stocking up on 6.5 bullets.

I've played with a bunch of stuff, but as said before 7828 is tough to beat. HOWEVER, I did recently switch my 140 loads to Win 780. I can get a bit over 3200 with it with 140s, and average 3515 with 120 TTSXs. I use 4831 mostly with the 100s (mid 3700s). Taken two elk with 140 Partitions and the 120 TTSX, deer with 140 Partitions and antelope with 100 gr Ballistic Tips (shot one in the neck and the head came off).

Splat,


There was a day when it was hard to find a powder that was to slow for the 264. With some of the slowest it is possible now. However there are only a half handful at that end of the chart.

That said 4831 is not a slow powder in the 264, usable but at the fast end of the 264 usable range. I have found good loads with RL-25 and Retumbo. 95 grain Vmax with RL-25 (coyotes do not like that load) And 130 grain Scirocco II with 67 grains of Retumbo (took a big bull elk with this load this year).

I tried some US-869 with 130 grain bullets and got poor results I am thinking that it is too slow???? at least for the 130s????

Stay with slow powders from 4831 to us-869 and you will find some thing that will get the job done.

With 140s ,the best two powders I found were Magpro and Magnum.My results mirror John Barness's.I had tried N-560,IMR-7828,H-1000,Retumbo,and Rl-25.Even these two are not case filling.

I killed a couple of mule deer and an antelope with 65 gr of Norma MRP with the 125 gr nosler partition. I have recently worked up two good loads, 62.5 gr H 4831 and the nosler 125 gr partition, I am getting about 3240 with that load. The other load consists of 68 gr of Ramshot magnum behind the barnes 120 gr ttsx, that load runs 3268, I use winchester magnum primers with these loads.
