Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: reloading data

got to go to the range today to try out my loads. I was using IMR 4064 and a Speer 170 HotCor. Results are, 43.7g = 2.75", 44.2g = 2.20", 44.7g = 1.75", 45.2g = 1.60", 45.7g = 1.10" (with two bullets in one hole), 46.2g = 2.10", 46.7g 1.60", and 47.7g = 1.70". All at 50 yards with iron sights.

Re: reloading data

So far I have loaded up 8 different charges to check for accuracy. Hope to get to the range this weekend to see what shots the best. I also ran ccx across the second edition of Modern reloading by Lee and it had the 170g 8mm loaded with 4064 starting out at 30.9 gr for velocity of 1939 and max of 35...

Re: reloading data

Hey Prof, thanks for the link.

BTW, glad to hear from you again. We use to chat some years ago when I was Kymauser, before SRF went through a couple of owners.

Re: reloading data

[/quote] Yes, that is why I wonder why you thought it was “watered down”. Note when comparing pressures that CUP pressures listed are NOT comparable to CIP psi measurements. Not only is the measurements in a different unit of pressure but the actual instruments are different. Use the velocity of the...

Re: reloading data

I found an article that states the American loads max out at 37,000 CUP, while the European approaches 50,000. Based on Winchester and Federal's pages, both of them shot a 170 gr at 2360 ft/sec. Nosler has a 180 gr going 2600 ft/sec and S&B has a 196 gr going at 2592. So IMR/Hodgden website shows th...

Re: reloading data

Thanks ammolab. Hodgdon website is the same as the IMR I mentioned. Which is apparently a watered down load.

reloading data

for 8mm. I am aware of the US watering down the original load due to change in diameter and all. My question is for the load data in the Lee and IMR sites, which are the same, will they result in the watered down version, or the original? More like 30-30 or European 8mm?

Re: yugo shooting high

I did check with my calipers and the old sight was 5.1mm and the new one was 6.9mm. I had thought I got one tall enough that I thought I might have to file down some, but apparently not. Groups also got a little tighter that I contribute to being a square post instead of the inverted 'V' style.

Re: yugo shooting high

funny story for all. So some idiot got a Mauser that shot high. So he thought he would build up front sight with jb weld. Went to range and shot exact same groups at 25 and 50 yards despite a taller sight. goes home to clean rifle and finds out that jb weld was not on front sight! Apparently the jb ...
