Just one more test with the Rem. 150gr core-lokt bullet in the trusty 30-06 to make sure I had the best load going for me this season. With imr4350 I get a factory dup load with a 1" group at 100 yards and I wanted to give 4064 a chance.
The load was only 47grs to try to save a little more meat and the 1st load was not crimped and set at an OAL of 3.25 inches (fac)
Not at poa, matter of fact, 2.5" right of where the 4350 powder struck and the 4 bullets had a group of 2.22".
Oh well, I still had the same load to try again but this one had a crimp on the cannelure and the OAL was at 3.19".
When the smoke cleared, there was my nice BIG 6" target at just 100 yards, after firing all four rounds, with the aid of a
front rest and a rear sand bag under the butt, looking back at me with a single, lone bullet hole in it !! I checked the
screws and scope and all was tight.
I was totally blown away. I could not understand how a rifle could like one powder so much and turn around and get this type of groups from another powder, when the brass length, sizing, primers and OAL were all the same with non and crimped loads.
I am dropping the 150gr bullet. Maybe next year?
Two weeks left.................. down to the 180gr or the .270 win mod. 70.
Hope it comes together soon. Next trip to the range will be very busy.
Thought I was going blind but two 4 shot groups of 55gr bullets from my 22-250 at .57 and .74 , let me know it was not me and just a bad loading combo.
Hope everyone is doing well shooting.
