So I have some work up loads done in 782 4350 and 4831 all IMR. Low to 1.5 grain below max with 1 grain intervals. Hope the gun gets finished soon, these loads are itchin to get fired. The day the rifle is done, Im calling in sick, as long as the weather cooperates.

Keeki said it all. But if you desire something different 51.5 gr of RL22 and a 110 accubond for accuracy. have seen several and myself who said this combo was extremely accurate.

7828 SSC is what I use with 120's Start at 54 and work up. less than 26 inch barrels can also use H-1000. but nothing slower The case is kind of limited to @ 60 gr so retumbo is out.

Retumbo is out????? wana explain
I used Retumbo with a 26" barrel and 110grn accubonds and got my most accurate load at 3100fps, I could have pushed it harder but that is where I got the best accuracy.

Is this a book 3100 or a chronograph 3100 and how many grains of powder are you using? a 25-06 case really only holds about 60 grains of Retumbo. You can't put enough retumbo in the case to ever get optmum speed. I've heard simular stories about H870.

imr 4350 would be a much wiser choice.

Do you know the real reason for not using light weight bullets with you super slow powders? Retumbo, h870, 50 BMG? You don't get a complete burn! The primer goes off. The powder at the rear of the case starts and the bullet and unburned powder goes roaring down your barrel.

You get throat errosion from the hot jet of powder. Super slow powders also media blast the rifling. Excessive muzzle blast from powder still burning as it leaves the end of the barrel. It is a simple thought process :)

To the poster you need to use LR mag primers with powders as slow as 7828 powder


It also comes back to case design. Shorter fat cases with steeper shoulders can get a given cal. of bullet addition velocity where the 50+ year old design is blowing primers. These are the AI's or other improved cases. Very proven with the modern WSM calibers. The barrels even last longer because the powder is forced to burn in the case and not media blasting the rifling.
