    What bullets are you using?

    @Gary Hornady 145gr ELD-X

    How do you determine the best powder load? I don't have a chronograph and just "ladder load" off of the recommendation of the manual. Then I see what one holds the tightest groups.

    @Gary same here. I loaded these with 59.5gr of H4831. It’s about .4gr less than the max load out according to the manual. I did the same thing on the 6.5 Grendels that I loaded and they shot awesome.

    How did they shoot?

    @Robert had the rifle sighted in with three rounds and it shot sub MOA at 100 yards. Very happy with this recipe. I have a T/C Encore with a 270 pistol barrel, I might take this recipe and knock it down some so it’s manageable in that setup.
