Okay, a friend and I have had a pair of Rem 700 re-barelled to 280/30 (of em2 fame). We need to provide 2x mil spec rnd for each rifle and two cartridges per rifle. While we have some period ammo we would rather not open the box.
So I am asking the assembled masses on SD that if anyone has a load, or can run the figures through quick load could they please do so. If its a quick load please could you run it with as many powders as possible.
We are looking for (all figures have come from a mil pam for the EM2) the following please.
Okay from the 1950 pam we have (also what we are trying to achieve with todays powderers).
31.5 grains powder (unknown)
140 grains projectile
24.5 inch barrel
23.5 inch shot travel (I am taking this to mean that it is barrel length minus chamber)
23.5 Tons/sq.inch max pressure (true)
Case (.243 winchester reformed to 280/30) 165.7 grains
+ water 208.3 grains
water capacity = 42.6 grains
If you need more info please PM me.
