    As always man different for each rifle.
    But im running 68grains of 2217, fed 215mag primers and 150LRAB @300_BLK

    Thats got some juice for a 20inch barrel @25/08IMP did 2213SC leave abit more room in the case and did u find it faster or slower than 2217

    I only tried 2213 with the 150 ELD X and just couldn't get the speed I think there was plenty of case space. I also tried R19 speed was OK but high pressure again then tried R22 with good speed and pressure seemed ok.i was getting over 3k with it and the 162 but dropped it back for longer case life.

    Rifle arrived today.

    Very happy, immaculate work done by Desert Guns in Cromwell.

    Mounted up the Sig Sauer Tango 6 5-30x56 mil/mil ffp. Unfortunately the 34mm Sig rings only come in one height which is far too high.

    Might chase some Warne rings down, I have a THLR cheek-rest coming Friday to fix this.

    Ladder loads for the 175 ELD-X all done.

    Off to the range tomorrow with the LabRadar then will load up for this Saturday's Gunslinger Hunter shoot.

    I will do my load testing with the 160 TMK and 162 ELD-X next week.

    Only thing left on the rifle will be a cerakote job after this weekends shoot. Graphite black bolt and Tungsten everywhere else.
