New to precision reloading question August 01, 2020, 12:20:13 PM I've reloaded both pistol and rifle for a few years however I am new to 6.5 Creedmoor and "precision long range" reloading. There is a lot to learn about this stuff.My set up is:Ruger Precision gen 3 24" 1:8 (Ruger 18029)Athlon BTR Gen 2 6-24x50 scopeStarline brass small primerH4350 powderBullet Hornady 140 gr ELD match (26331)Primer CCI SR No. 400Planning on finding my nodes using the following and my chrono.50 rounds- 5 each of:38.1 grains38.438.739.039.339.639.940.240.540.8This will be through new non-fireformed Starline brass.All that being said all I have two questions. 40.8 seems maybe too hot depending on the loading manual I read and I think may be close to compression. Is this dangerous?The only small rifle primers I have on hand are CCI #400. I'm gleaning from this forum that small rifle magnum may be the way to go. Are CCI 400's ok to use?I'm happy to have found this forum, oodles of great info. I would appreciate any comments or pointers on the above.Thanks in advance.Roaneman.
