General Discussion / Re: Hornady 143 grain ELD-X Lot to Lot variances
Last post by gman47564 -
mtman that's pretty common really with about any bullet..alot of times you have to tweak your load a little when changing lots...anymore when buying bullets I try to buy batches of 500 instead of 100 count boxes to avoid the lot to lot differences as much as possible...

bob one thing for sure... if it doesn't make a difference it wont be the powder charges fault... so far it has throwed to +/- a single kernel of powder...that's impressive to me...

General Discussion / Hornady 143 grain ELD-X Lot to Lot variances
Last post by MTMAN -
Has anyone else noticed lot to lot variances with Hornady 143 Grain ELD-X bullets. I developed a lode that shoots 5/8" groups at 200 yards using 41 grains of H4350, COL 2.881. I use a micro-adjust bullet seating die I have marked for that load. Used up that box of 100 and bought another. Loaded the same load with the same setting on my micro-adjust die and the COL comes in at 2.911". That is too long for my action, and so I adjusted them back to 2.881" like my older load. They shoot just under an inch at 100 yards. That is totally unacceptable. So much for developing a load I can depend on!

Grant, nice setup.  New toys are good ways to keep the hand loading from getting boring. 

I currently use a Chargemaster and have thought about getting the FX120i as a way to improve the consistency of my loads.  It would be interesting to see if you see an improvement in your group size or more consistent MV as a result of the improved accuracy of powder measurement.  Intuitively, you would expect to...unless other variables are covering up the benefit.  So looking forward to hearing about your range results.

You might try H4831sc proven powder and in the same "burn" rate
as RL23  Just an FYI, some of the Alliant powders do show a
tendency at higher temps. and at max loads to increase in pressure
at an increased rate.
P.S. IMR's new 4955 is at about the same "burn rate" as RL26
going to be the newbie and give it a try and the RL26 in my 22 creed
Someones got to do it...    :o

Yes Sir....Long time user of H4831. It's all my .270 ever used. You find
that one goldie locks powder and stick with it.....That 22 Creed work
you plan on sounds interesting. That 6.53x49 (.257) wild cat of mine
will be fun to proof....LOL   I'll probably start with R-16, and try to be
safe from there !!....LOL  Testing  H4831 along side R-23 will be worth
some good range time. That was my original plan with my 7mm build,
but the .257 jumped ahead of the line.

General Discussion / Muzzle Brake Question
Last post by thatmarine -
Gents,

Anyone using the ZRODelta Cowl Induction Muzzle Brake for 6.5 Creed?

With Christmas sales i have found it for $144 vice $199. It will replace my ASR brake which is for 7.62.

Thoughts?

Fuj, nobody here has a problem with (you)experienced loaders looking
for the next best thing. Thats how we find the (RL16) and such.
Where some of the guy's have a problem is the newbies looking on
the net and jumping in with both feet, trying to get that magical
number and not knowing what to look for and when to back off.

If you want us to narrow down a little, tell us what brass and powder
you are going to use. What do you expect?  If you want 2850+fps
your not going to get much help.  2700-2775 sure thats really what
your "shooting" for.
