Thanks, (tgp) gave me info on h4350. Kirby Allen gave me info on Reloader 15, I can go to 71gn and get 2960 but it a little warm.

That Glenn is a good fella. He has given me more help than I could ever hope for when ever ask.

As soon as I get time I'm going to try some accuracy loads I have made up with
H4350. Does anyone know how temperature sentive RL 15 is.

Thanks, Jon

From what I have seen, RL 15 is similar to Varget. Fairly temp stable.

works great out here in Arizona,
not to sure if I am temp tolerant though Slap_Forehead

Nice looking XP red!

RE15 is not as temp sensitive as RE17 and 22, but if it's a warm load in current conditions, I'd watch closely as you reach summertime temps.

H4350 is one of the most temp tolerant powders I've used, and excellent lot to lot consistency, but you probably won't get the same velocities as the RE.

That's a sweet looking rig and seems like perfect hog, bear, and elk medicine.

Your velocities are insane. Is it typical of the 338 WSM in a 15 inch barrel to get over 2900 fps with 180 gr bullets? A 325 WSM gets almost identical velocity from a 24-inch rifle barrel according to the Hodgdon Annual Manual. I understand the 325 is slightly less effecient compared to the 338 but not that much.

Hitman, do you know what velocities you are getting out of your SSK 325 WSM XP?

I got the reloading info from Kirby Allan he goes to 71gn with reloader 15, in my coronagraph 70gn gave 2920.
TGP here sent me info with H4350 and 200gn ab at close to 2800. When I get time I'm going to try
H4350 with 180ab

I look at the hodgdon web site and the reloading 325 with h4350 and what info I have on 338wsm is 4gn more. It took 6 months to build and I found everything I could on the 338wsm in a xp100, the 3 loads I found everyone is shooting Lilja 15 inch barrels. I also have info on RL19 from nmhunter on 325wsm that runs as fast.

Grendell, don't chrono, so don't know velocities. All I know is that my .325 kills like the hand of Thor- 1 shot 350# bear, 279 yd. bear, multiple deer around 350, croc. Much of the time I have trouble choosing between this and my 6.5/.284. It's that good and accurate, so the fps doesn't worry me a lot.

I never coronagraph until 3-4 years ago when my friends bought Leupold scopes with cds system then I had to know so they would get the right dial for there gun,we all went in and bought a coronagraph so I have it and use it when we want to.
My friends like all the new and bigger things, now they bought 26,28 and working on 30 nosler stuff.

This is worth reading twice. Very few game animals are killed because of marginal differences in velocity. IMHO, we spend too much time stressing over 100-200 fps in velocity, when we should be shooting.

I agree, once I get my accuracy I start shootings out to 500yd and take notes.i was hog hunting with Doc and was using my xp 22-250imp,he saw a hog at 500yd he told me were to hold at the crack of the gun dead hog.my longest hog kill to date.
Accuracy first speed is what it is, some time I get both.

Amen, Sawfish. Praise the Lord and pass the nonchronograffed ammunition. Use the manuals for safe loads and don't worry about 25-75 fps.

Ditto on Red, sawfish And Doc. I don.t look at velocity until I have the accuracy. But Then I check the velocity to see what my drops are calculated at, then the fun starts, shooting and checking the "accuracy" of my ballistic programs. I do not go by the listed velocities in the loading manuals. They are set up for longer rifle barrels not the 15-18" sp barrels.
I like to shoot and I am definitely a"techi" I guess it comes with my profession.

I'm not "worried" about velocity, I just like to know. I'm always interested to know the real velocity differences between rifles and pistols of the same caliber. My original question was just in regards to the extremely high velocity red65 posted. He's basically getting rifle velocities from a 15" tube. I'm just curious about that. If those velocities are typical of the cartridge, then I want one even more. Seems like a perfect big game XP round for critters larger than deer, though it will certainly lay them flat too.

No need for everyone to get their panties in a wad. It was a simple question.

I was surprised myself, the members who gave me info with reloader 15 were spot on.i tried h4350 with 200gn bt last weekend at 2740 about 50ft slower than tgp
(Glenn) is getting out of his. I'm sticking with RL15 180ab for now.
