When I looked at my dies. I saw AA3100 load written inside. I have t thought of this powder and I know I have at least one new pound. Looking farther, I found most of a pound opened. I loaded 62,62.5,63 & 63.5g Velocity should be 2850-2900 by book. But Im not hung up on velocity. It will have plenty of power for Mr Whitetail inside 300 yards.
Shooting it today that 63g load is quite a shooter! Out @ 100 it put two in one hole and the third 1/2” to the left. The fourth and fifth farther left. As this bbl heats it moves left. I adjusted windage and let it cool for about thirty as I worked with a 308 and 4895... shot five more. First four where touching ragged hole and fifth was again 1/2” out to right.
This will work for me!!! 😉
I need to install the timney trigger I bought. (Commercial 98 Mauser) this trigger is clean but about 6/7#. Ill look at the bedding while stock of off. Maybe relieve barrel channel a lil...
