These days I watch for leading in my barrel to see when the bullet is trying to skid.
I'd work up a load, personally.
Were did you find that information of 3000 fps?
If your goal is 3000fps in a 30.06 using essentially a pistol powder, I’d tread very carefully.
for the 30cal 120gr 2000FPS 1:8/1:7 3000FPS 1:10
I don't know if it is true or not, but I try to keep plated bullet loads close to lead bullet velocity.
The only 120gr. .308" bullet they list is for the .300BLK
300blk 120 SP
30 Cal (.308 Diameter) 120gr Spitzer Point (B.C. .303 G1)
MAXIMUM VELOCITY 2150 FPS.
Recommended C.O.L. 2.000
I would write to them and ask specifically about your intended application.
been there, wet mud behind outdoor range. I was only shooter. Just stood there thinking about the multiple splashes. Went home .Kinetic hammer next day.
Reason to shoot cardboard close is the see if the plating failed. Next outing ill some on the long range. Im still waiting to hear back from Accura.
These are bullets where the plating has failed.
That's not good. RMR, MBC, GT Bullets, Quality Cast, Hunter's, Reeds... everyone I buy bullets from except Grizzly (Cast Performance) has typically responded in 24 hours or less to a question about max velocity or safe use. Grizzly I can kind of understand since that's not exactly their main thing but cast bullets isn't Reeds main thing either and they responded in an hour when I asked about their "Penetrator" .357" cast bullets. BTW: NO they are NOT intended for light, thin-skinned game!
If you don't hear back I'd suggest looking for another seller. There are plenty who support this forum directly.
Ummm, is this right? I find that any plated bullet leaves that grey residue on targets shot close up (a foot or two). My experience is all with pistol bullets, but the grey residue is not an indication of bullet failure, just what plated bullets do because the plating comes off a little while the bullet goes down the rifling. I see this on factory ammo and reloads.
Excellent! IMR 4895 and IMR 4064 seem to be back in availability if you'd prefer to use a slower powder and try for that 3Kfps mark. I don't think 2400 will get you there. Might but I doubt it.
