75gr Eld load results.
« on: December 17, 2018, 12:20:44 PM »
Hey gang.  Well I finally got to get out and run my hand loads through my PSA upper with 1:7 twist.  Here are my results.  Hornady 75gr Eld seated to 2.260. 

Hodgdon Superformance
28.6gr. =  .65"
28.8gr. =  1"
29.0gr. =  .69"
29.2gr. =  1.76"
29.4gr. =  1.93"
29.6gr. =  1.3"

Hodgdon H414
27.7gr. =  .69"
27.9gr. =  1.36"
28.1gr. =  1.03"
28.3gr. =  1.43"
28.5gr. =  .95"
28.7gr. =  1.74"

My rifle was benched with a lead sled just fyi.  Seems like these 75gr Elds will likely like a lower charge of each.  Next I will work down 1 grain of powder.  The top charges are max according to Hodgdons load data.

COL was 2.260.  And yes I plan on working down 1 grain on each powder.  I'm hoping for to see tighter groups.  They definitely opened up at the higher end of each.
