    The gimp's reloading adventures

    • Reloading press used (list modifications if relevant): #Dillon550
    • Caliber: .300Blk
    • Bullet (Weight, Coating, Profile, Manufacturer): Nosler 125gr ballistic tips
    • Powder manufacturer, type and charge; volume, type (ball, stick, flake): Hogdon Lil'Gun. 17.4gr on the left target, 17.6gr on the right, target shot 50 years with 1-6.5x scope
    • Dies used: Hornady and Lee FCD
    • Primers used: CCI Small Rifle 400
    • Cartridge Overall Length (COAL): 2.10"
    • Chronograph data (if possible): #PoorFag
    • Goals intended with this load: Accurate supersonic HD/hunting round for use while suppressed, cycles the 11.5" KAC SR-30 rifle properly
    • Results - accuracy, smokiness, clean burning, flash, temperature, smell, brass deformation, etc.: Nothing to note other than the 17.6gr load is markedly more accurate
    • Problems encountered and fixes applied: My seated rest position
    • Anything of interest: Shooting from the prone will almost certainly enhance these groups, I also plan to work up a 17.8gr load. Overall, I think this combination of components has real potential.

    Watching with interest.

    Why did you choose the Nosler 125gr? What is the min fps for expansion of the bullet?

    ETA
    Found the spec 1800fps


    You are probably on the verge of expansion failure at 300blk velocities. Extremely close at 100 yards.

    The Barnes 110gr Tac TX has a minimum expansion speed of @ 1350 fps. The vortex tac TX 110gr 300blk load is clocking @ 2350fps from the barrel.

    I would estimate your load to be @ 2050-2100fps from the barrel.

    A text from Sean M.

    I rarely see anything past 50 out here but I do plan to bump up the charge a bit and see how it shoots.

    Copy that, I'm intrigued with the future results. Sean M knows what he's talking about and I'd defer to his experience and advice.

    Love Berry's. They just seem to work. And are easy to work with in loading processes.

    I've had a lot of success with this bullet too. Over 50K worth of them at this point. It's me favorite! In fact I just switched back to them after a brief dabble with some 147 grain coated bullets. Back home and content with these.

    Aside: I have to push em a little faster than you are to keep them consistently at 130 PF though (4.25" barrels).

    I suppose if you consider my effectively saying "Good choice in bullet, I've shot an assload of them and they work well..." to be bragging, then yeah...I guess I'm bragging.
