    Default first reloads.... 204

    Just got back from the range with my ruger ultralight and my friends remington sps 204's.

    I used:
    Hornady brass trimmed: 1.840
    CCI BR4 Primers
    35 gr Bergers
    Benchmark Powder
    Full length resized

    Start load: 25.0 gr
    Max load: 26.6 gr
    Work up .2 gr at a time

    INFO is from Hogdon. Both guns did not like anything under 25.8 gr. Both guns really liked 26.0 and 26.2 gr, groups opened up abit past that. The Remington also liked a max load of 26.6 grs. The biggest groups for both rifles ran about 1.2" Smallest for both guns came in at .4 for the ruger and .5" for the remington with 26.0 grs. 26.6 ran .6 for the rem. Most guys on the Internet seem to love this load and most seem to be using 26.4-26.6 grs of powder. I only shot 3 shot groups as both barrels are pretty thin. I will begin 5 shot groups next weak and will start playing with the coal. Since I'm loading for 2 rifles this may get interesting..... or I may give up and load each seperatly and begin neck sizing only. Also I have not been able to uniform primer pockets or flash holes YET! Also I should mention, I noticed no pressure signs with either gun.

    Use with caution / Verify loads against published data / etc.
