    Blaser 223 53gr load data (Wanted)

    Hi

    Looking for load data for my R8 in .223, I have a few different powders to hand and a couple of boxes of 53gr V-Max

    Any, and all data for the R8 .223 would be very welcome

    Cheers

    Does the rifle make have any real bearing on the load data?

    None whatsoever.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    I'm sure that, like the TIKKA load requested in a different thread, that there is also a Blaser reloading manual issuing data for every model and caliber of Blaser Rifles.

    I mean, there must be such a thing because everyone keeps asking for weapon specific load data, right??~Muir

    Will that be year specific Muir? So a different load for a 1997 Blaser to one made in 2003 for instance.

    Reado there are no shortcuts mate, just work up a load specific to your rifle using data supplied by the powder companies whose powders you have.

    Thanks for the reply’s chaps, I have found in the past that what works well in one make of rifle is pants in another make! All I was asking for was if any of the R8 owners on here had developed an accurate .223 load that I could use this as a benchmark / starting point.

    Interesting, I've personally not come across that.
