    You guys may give me beef about the 277wlv but it won't chamber in either 223 or 300....

    If that's code for .277 is lame.

    Any round that can't inadvertanly blow up a weapon is a pussy round in my book.

    Hahahaha

    I'd like to see those pics also. They may be the ones I recall seeing a few years back.

    and that right there is why I crimp my reloads. People will argue if it's needed or not, but for me it's 100% required. I tested a load (believe it was Barnes 110g TAC-TX) and with a case that had less neck tension while seating the bullet, and no crimp, I was able to get it into battery with no problem. Everything gets a crimp... period.

    And I use different brands and colors for my calibers ... black Pmag =5.56, FDE Lancer = 300BLK, grey aluminum = 458Socom - not that the Socom could chamber in anything else! LOL

    Mustangfreek, just as an FYI, you're using the same bullet, powder and OAL as I do. My test ladder was also almost identical to yours except that I topped out at 16.4gr. 15.8gr ended up giving me the best accuracy through my barrel. Unfortunately I don't have a chrono either since I can't use one at the range where I shoot.

    Well between rain squalls and snow flurries got some testing in and the 15.8 load seemed to be pretty good, nice little group at 50 yards and eject, Bolt held open etc, the higher load shot about the same but started flattening primers and pretty noticeable ejector swipe. This is just a blaster load so I'll load up some more of these.

    Also have some 110 varmageddons and 125gr Nosler BT'd to play with and work up

    Bump..Anyone using H-110 and. 110gr Nosler varmageddons ?

    Sime of the data from the 110 vmax to to Nosler is quite a bit, no chrono but played with some test loads today with the 16" BHW barrel today with decent results

    What 110gr Nosler or vmax -h110 recipes - chrono data/barrel length.
