    Default 375 ruger load data HELP!!!

    Can anyone out there provided me with the reccomended starting and maximum charges for the 270 grain speer boat tail. I can't find this anywhere and my local sportsmans did not have a Speer Manual when I was there today....


    ... What velocities is it showing for those respective charges?


    Thanks

    I'm in Canada away from my books, back home Thursday. If my memory serves my correctly Speer books don't have 375 Ruger data.

    You can't go wrong with RL-15, RL-17, W760 or H-4350. I wont quote charges by memory.

    Factory Hornady 270SP run 2840fps and that is obtainable. I've had best results with RL-15 and RL-17.

    I found that the published velocities in the factory ammo were very close in my Alaskan. The 300gr round nose was more accurate than the 270SP but both were ugly groups.

    I do remember that 73.5 - 74.5gr of RL-15 was the sweet spot in my samples with the 260gr Nosler's. The Accubond shot around 3/4" and the Partition right at 1".

    Nosler does have a 300gr Accubond out now. I have 100 on the shelf but haven't got around to doing anything with them yet.
