They cycle fine in my 1974 336, I shoot a lot of them loaded at about 2050 fps over 22 gr. of 2400 powder. What powder do you plan to use, and what velocity are you looking for?
I've worked with 18 - 22 grains of 2400. The 22 grain is very accurate out of the 336.coalgeo said:Have not really thought about the powder as of yet. With stocks on hand I can go 2400, Unique, Blue Dot, and Trail Boss. Also thinking about rifle powders commonly used for lead bullets. Velocity should not be much of an issue as I would suspect anything over 1700 fps would work.
