Dies and Norma brass are on the way. Anyone load for this cartridge? I'm mainly looking at 130 and 140 gr bullets. I've heard Retumbo and Magpro (?) work well, especially with the 140 gr and up bullets. What works for you?
By the manual, re-22 is faster, by my PACT there is less than 60 FPS difference. RE-19 shots a little tighter groups. I bought 4 large (5 lbs) bottles of re-19 a few years back-same lot- so I can't comment on variation. I'll post some loads when I get back on moday.Originally posted by Calif. Hunter:
I'm mainly interested in the 130's with the 140's just in case my rifle doesn't like the lighter ones. This rifle is just for deer and antelope, so I'm not interested in trying to stretch it for larger game.
Which gives better velocity with the 130's - RL 19 or RL-22? I have RL-22, and I have heard that RL-19 can vary quite a bit, from lot to lot.
