Anyone here with quickload? Some help with accurate 2015

Postby Ramson22 » Sun Sep 23, 2018 7:30 pm

I was just given 7lbs of accurate 2015 and would like some quickload data for it and the following RN bullets.
250gr, 300gr, 330gr. Please PM me the info if you do run the requested data. Gun will be a ruger american bolt action 1/16 twist 5 groove.

It's too slow for jacketed bullets. I know next to nothing about cast boolits however. I'll leave that to someone else. Generally speaking, in the 450b, about all the slower you want to bother with is Accurate 1680

Do you mean lower velocities will be attained compared to other powders, or that pressure will be lower?

Both, low pressure and velocity. You won't be able to get enough of that powder in a case to get into any pressure trouble. Probably see a bunch of unburned kernels in the barrel.

1680 would be my pick of powders for those weight of bullets

And that was while I was drinking a glass of water, no less! ;)

Since I shoot my plinking cast bullet loads at around 1700fps. I would still like to try 2015, even though I would be wasting powder with each shot. I have no other use for 2015. Also this powder has to be very old and is probably only good for plinking. The price sticker on the bottle is from some place called Scrappys and is marked $15.99 . the plastic cans appear to still be sealed and most weigh just over a pound. When was the last time you bought powder for $16 a pound.

As Al said. Fill them up, leaving enough room to seat the bullet and use the hottest magnum primer you can find to light it off.

If it sounds wrong, don't shoot another round until you make sure the bullet cleared the barrel, either by a hole somewhere in the target board or visually checking the bore.
