Did you use H414 with the 200-gr in your 8x60S?Hi SOUTHERN. As you know H414 can't be any longer imported here. So I've laid in a stock of five 1lb canisters. I going to get around to reloading Sierra Game King 200 grain and European 150 grain and 180 grain FMJ. I've always liked that weight, 200 grains, after owning a 8x60S Mauser and using it with 196 grain bullets and factory ammunition. I'm aiming for a all UK legal 2,450 fps in a 24" barrel. I think I'll be OK. What think you? I'll be using CCI Magnum Primers.
I use RS 60 for 150gr Hornady SST and 180gr Nosler Accubond in 24" barreled Sako 3p.06, very accurate but ,lively!Hey guys
Newbie to reloading and starting so looking to see what people are using
Going to be loading for a howa 1500
I fancy using a 150g bullet and been looking at the Sierra pro Hunter or game king
Was wondering what powder people found best etc
Thanks in advance
That sounds like a good setup for covering a variety of ground...only about 4 inches low at 300 yards with the 180 gr.My long range load is a 180 gr. Sighted in 3” high at 100. My brush load is the Sierra 200 gr. SPBT with a max load of RL 19, the 200 grainier hits dead on at 100 without having to adjust my scope and is very accurate.
2,650 fps is about right for a normal load with a 180-gr from a 22-inch barrel.Actually the 180 gr. is about 6" low at 300. I'm only getting 2650 fps from my 22" Rem 700. I might be able to work up past that, but why bother, it works.
