All the info I gathered would indicate she's running pretty hot but I never had any warning signs and proceeded slowly.



Moly 105 Amax (kissing), 48.5gr 7828SSc, CCI BR2, Lapua case





Couldn't edit the post (too old) but details matter and I just now caught where I listed the wrong case. A minor thing more than likely but wanted to correct it.


What about guns?When do we get guns?

Has anybody tried RL 26 or IMR 7977 with 100 grainers?

Here's to hoping the 45grains of RL17 hits 3200. That would do right fine now wouldn't it.

Temperature swings here would make me really nervous about 3,200+

108* tomorrow.

Climate is a little more mellow at my latitude and longitude but it's headed for 100+ here as well. Might be a really good chance to see what that load will take/give. It was developed at about 65*. Might just load a few and run them for numbers hit the red line back off and see how it shoots for accuracy in the heat.

Just got around to trying rl26. 105hpbt.

At 49.5.gns. I got 3208 fps. 1" at 100yards.
49 3155 fps. .665" at 100 yards. Coal was 2.765".
I'm sure once I get the rifle cleaned and in a touch less wind it will do even better.

But 3155 in a 22" barrel. Is more that I was hoping for.

Pretty sure that 50 grains would be about max.
I am using GFL brass a guy may snag another grain or two room in some Lapua and pick up 50 or 100 ft.

Bumping this..I'd like more info on the latest powders with the latest VLD's. Especially interested in RL-26 and 108 E-match, but more info on all loads put in easy to find spot is never a bad thing. Keep posting them up fellas!

Hitting 3200 with heavy brass and no pressure was a breeze with RL 26 my gun liked 49 grains at 3170fps. From a 22" barrel I'm sticking with 26
Lapua brass at 50 or 51 grains should get even better. Put the hurt on a yote at 494yards didn't do bad on the head shot. Lol.

Good Shot, R-26 every place I look it's on back order, or they just don't have R-26, would like to have some to try. Rio7

The 6 mm Br site has some loads for the heavier bullets but it was pre-Reloder 26. It works great in the standard .243 and I can't wait to trying on my next one a 6 mm AI. I think 3300 might be doable with 105s but I will probably hunt with 95 grain Noslers as I stocked up on those. Mine is 1 in 8 twist and I am curious if it will stabilize the 115s.

I'm running 47.0gr R-26 in std 243, stock adl 24" with the Hornady 105 bthp and Amax in Win brass with 210M. Both shoot just below 3100, with the Amax a hair faster and a hair more accurate. I'd be running 26 in an AI too, with the heavies.

I used the Amax load on my deer last year. It was a bit softer than I expected. Shots were just over 400, and it took 3 to put him down. Only 2 made it through the on-side ribs and neither made it through the offside ribs. Slightly quartering away, big-bodied muley.
