Not sure this will be applicable for anyone not shooting a 2011 platform, because I'm loading very long, but for those who are, here's what data I could salvage today. Much of the data was lost, because I recently traded in my old F-1 chrony in for the Gama chrony, and haven't learned how to use it's features yet, and since I didn't remember to take my owners manual to the range with me today, I forgot you have to manyally save each string to memory before turning it off, or the data in the working memory will be lost. So I'll have to repeat most of the loads I chronographed today, wich I don't really mind a bit because it's a great excuse to shoot my new blaster some more! The only one I saved did not make major, but talk about a smooth shooting minor load, WHOOOO!
200gr Zero TCFN in front of 4.0gr Solo-1000 loaded to 1.220" OAL, mixed brass, WSP primers. (10 shots).
Avg Velocity 743.5fps
Power factor 148.7
Extreme spread 52.3fps
Standard Deviation 17.4fps
BTW, here's a picture of the new blaster,
Ok here's the new data I collected today, It was 101 degrees Farenheight and 92% humidity around 2pm at the range today, and I was sweating buckets, but even at this temperature, none of these loads showed any pressure sign at all. The mildest shooting and the most accurate (1.6" from the bench at 25yds) of all the loads tried, was surprisingly also the least expensive to produce, makes 170 power factor with plenty of room to spare in the pressure department!
185gr RNF Precision Molly with 4.75gr Solo-1000 at 1.225 OAL, mixed brass, WSPM Primers.
Ya just can't beat that deal!
I need to shoot some more of it to be sure, but I'm pretty confident I've just found my new practice/competition load for my new SV!
