I just finished shooting and trying a different bullet in my 15 in bullberry.
It was a 140grn Rem Core lock and IMR 3031 and CCI LRP. With some verry impresive results 3 different powder charges starting at 27.5 to 28.5. When i did my part I had 1'' or less. Has anyone else tryed this combanation? I was shooting a hornady 120 grn and RL15 and the 3031 and 140grn out grouped them..

I did load some rounds with 3031. I was using 120gr and 140gr Nosler BT's. I had some good results, but I switched to Reloader 15 and I have been amazed at the results. I currently load 120gr Nosler BT's with this powder and it shoots so well I do not plan to switch. I am sure the 3031 will work fine and it may be more accurate in you gun.

Thing im wondering now is it the bullet weight or the powder.
I shot some 120 grn with 3031 and they grouped about the same as with RL15

Are you guys using a chronograph on any of your loads? Just wondering what you're getting?

I found with my factory barrel that the 140gr bullets shot much more consistent groups and velocities than the lighter ones did. I purchased it specifically for a handgun hunt in Wisconsin. I worked up several loads in different weights looking for the best downrange punch I could get out to 200yds. I didn't want to drive a thousand miles and have a huge one come out and not be confident in my load. The 140gr Nosler BT's ended up getting the final nod on both accuracy and velocity. With the RL-15 I was getting mid to high 2200's with them and grouping under 2" from a solid rest at 200yds.

Didn't take a deer in WI, but have taken a doe with the load at 283yds, which knocked her off her feet. I have recently picked up some of the Rem. CL's and will probably work with them some after deer season get's through. I have several loads to work up in different calibers and RL-15 will most likely get the first chance to get things rolling.

I have chronographed my load. Nosler 120gr BT, 35.5gr of Reloader 15, Win primers: This yields a muzzle velocity of 2350 fps from my 14" barrel.

I have loaded 35grn of RL15 under 120grn hornady vmax I dont know what my velosity was but the case was sticky removing from the chamber and flat primer was enough for me to back off and not load any hotter. I have a 15'' bullberry barrel its a costom barrel and the talerance is alot tighter than a factory barrel

Yup, each one is different. You have to know their limits. I've heard Bullberry barrels are great.

I really like mine and in my opion they are worth the extra that you pay for them
i know that my next barrel will be by bullberry..
