Working on 7x57 loads
With this new to me 93 custom mouser 7x57 I have started working on a load I am using Hornady 139 Grn. SST boat Tail which I have never used before so hope they work out good. I am using Hogdon H 4895 powder which I really like and use it in most all my rifles I will only be using what the Books call for in a load.
I have used the H 4895 in my 7 mag using 120 Grn. Sierra soft point boat tail Reduced loads that Hogdon list on their sight and it has worked very well for me. When I had my Ruger Number 1 I used the Hornady 139 Grn pointed soft point boat tail and they worked good. I loaded up a doz. 7x57 today but will be next week before we get a break in the weather rain starting tonight through the weekend will report back as to the results Keep in mind I am old and shaky. I may go ahead and load a few of the Sierra 120 grain soft point and give them a try also while I am waiting for a good day to shoot.
