Today we have been testing some loads for my old Sako AV .270. I am using Reloader 22 in Remington cases 002 off the lands. Propelling a 150 grain Hornaday soft point.
I worked out the average load from several reloading manuals taking their max and min loads and dividing by the number of data sources to get my average.
I started out at 52 grains with my final 4 shots being 56.5 grains. 52 grains was 1 grain above my worked out minimum and 56.5 was 1 grain below my max.
There was only one clear winner with 4 shots at 100 yards in a 10p piece. It was the 52.5 grain load.
I have been reading the "is this what is to be expected" thread. In fact it was my inspiration. I am just surprised the charge weight is so low and a little concerned about velocity and I don't have a chrono to check it.
Should I stick with the same load or adjust the distance from the lands?
