RL 7 @ 34 grains got me 2150 with the Rem 200 grain core lokt. Was thinking about trying some h335. How much to get 2200. 42 grains of h335 gets me 2350 with the 180 speers. I'm thinking maby around 40 grains?

There is no real way to tell until you shoot it out of your gun. Pick a starting point, and then shoot it through a chronograph until you get the desired velocity.

Depending upon temperature, 39.0 H335 gets me around 2090 to 2130 fps, so 40 grains would likely put you a little below your desired 2200.

If you've a chronograph, I'd start at 38 and work up a half grain at a time to 40.5 to see where that has you winding up, velocitywise.

20gns difference in the bullet wgt, not much, pretty sure the 180 will do the job. ;D

Your right 20 grains isnt much of a differance in bullet weight but these are two very diffrent bullets. I dont think 50fps will make all that much of a diffrence either but from what I've read you can get to 2200 fps so thats what I'm shooting for. Ha Ha get it. Shooting for. I crack myself up. ;D. I'll most likely be using the speer 180's for pig and the 200 Rem's for deer.

Scott, if I may ask...How accurate was this load?

Scott,
I would shoot OVER a chronograph and not through it. Too hard to piece back together when you shoot through it.

My load of 34 grains of RL 7 is a real accurat load. With open sight @ 50 yards and the stock trigger I almost print a clover leaf. I'd get two shot touching and a third almost touching. Its at least a 1 moa load. Just installed a scope and after my 450 gets a wild west trigger the 35 is next on the list. I'm hopping it will be under 1 moa with the scope and trigger.

I did make the mistake of placing my chrony to close to the bench one time while shooting my 444. The plastic things and rods blew off the chrony and it fell over. :eek: First thing a thought was their went a 100 bucks. Worked fine after I put it back together and a little further out. It wasnt that hard to put back together.
