I am writing to see if anyone has already done the workup for this caliber and bullet. I have done up a couple of sets of loads so far, but am unimpressed with the accuracy. Contrary to my nature I am "asking for directions" to see if there have been any good success combos already.
I am shooting these out of a Winchester 94. Yes, either the 350 Hornady loads or the 325 LeverEvolutions shoot quite well from this rifle. I'm just trying to get pointed in the right direction for powders, charge, primer and OAL since the grouping hasn't seemed to tighten up yet. I'm also a bit hesitant to go up to the more stout loads since this is only my second load to start working up. I have not acquired a chronograph and have no experience with identifying overpressured loads. Besides, I don't want to fire off a bundle of heavy loads in this rifle since I intend upon passing it down to my heirs in forty years or so.
My interest in the Kodiak brand is to obtain a bullet that will not shed its jacket when hitting something as thin-skinned as an Afognak Black-tailed deer. If I am able to duplicate the factory Hornady ballistics of a 350gr bullet exiting at 2200fps that would be great. I'd just like to know if anyone else has found which combination gives the best place from which to start with this bullet.
Thanks in advance one and all...
