  1. Default What's your 2018 Load Recipe?

    What's everybody loading for this season?

    For me this year it is going to be:

    Caliber: 6.5 Creedmoor

    Primer: Federal 210 or 210M
    Powder: Alliant RL-15 (39-40 grains)
    Projectile: Nosler Accubond (130 grain)

    Sized to my specific rifle the OAL is around 2.72" I believe.

    Game I plan to hunt with this load : California Black Tail Deer, Mule Deer in Colorado and hopefully a few pig hunts here in California.

    Cal: 7mm-08HT
    Brass: Winchester
    Primer: Federal 210M
    Powder: Varget 41.3 grains
    Bullet: 140 grain Accubonds

    My rifle seems to like a little jump so COL is 2.77. I intend to play with seating depth a little more but I wanted to use this load for bear season so I'm settled for now. Planning to use this load or some slight variation thereof for deer in the fall, maybe elk.

    .308 is a work in progress, but so far I'm going with much the same components. Got some more testing to do but so far I'm getting pretty good accuracy with 43 and 43.5 grains, and 45.5 and 46 grains of Varget pushing 165 grain Accubonds.

    It took a long time to find, but this load has been excellent. Right around 2700fps and accuracy in the 5/8-3/4" range.

    Frankly, just for the romance. They make me happy.

    I got a new muzzleloader last year and it really prefers the glide sabots over the regular ones. Fine by me..

    Still developing loads...maybe one of these days i'll settle on a couple that are "good enough" hahaha.

    7mmWSM - I think I'm getting close
    .223 - Also pretty close
    .220 Swift - Still in the early stages of testing
    .308 - some promising results but need more tests
    7mm-08 - haven't even messed with it yet

    After 16 years of absolutely steamrolling critters with a 200 grain Accubond in .300 RUM, I am working with a different bullet. Gonna load a 199 grain lathe turned copper. Should be able to get 3200 fps plus. Also have 181's that will go 3400 plus. Best accuracy wins. Remington brass, Federal 215's, and a big dose of appropriate powder. This bullet was used in Africa to take down a 1900 pound Eland. In a .257 Bee, 116 grain. Bet either flavor I have will wreck an elk. mtmuley

    MT- Gonna assume that it's one of Steve's bullets. Is it a prototype? What powder? 3200 is pretty good speed also. Wonder what my 30-378 would do with them!

    Both bullets are available from Steve. Haven't shot them yet. We crunched numbers and think the 199 will work in my 10 twist at our elevations. We'll see. 3200 is easy in my rifle with the 200 Accubond. Have a good elk tag this year. Gonna try to use a Hammer. mtmuley
