Worked on some Hawk bullet loads for my Savage 300Win Mag and my Ruger Hawkeye 358Win.
Here are some beginning results with both rifles and loads. There is great potential for accuracy with both rifles and bullets. I will be working up the velocities some with 358Win. TAC and W-748 are showing a lot of promise with the Hawk 250gr RT (jacket thickness .035). Tac gave me 2336fps, but was not as accurate as the W-748.
TAC works better for accuracy in my 358Win when it is at the upper end so I still have a little room to work with TAC. I have a lot of room to work with concerning the W-748 which only gave me 2194fps, but it was a mild load. Today was a great start. The Savage 116FHSS did as usual, shot great and had great velocities. The Ruger Hawkeye is shooting this bullet good like it does the different 225gr bullets I have used.
The 220gr Hawk RT (jacket thickness .035) will be my heavy for caliber load with my 300Win Mag. The apparent stringing is my fault, I pulled my third shot.
220gr Hawk RT, Win brass, CCI250 primers, 71.4grs of RL-22, 2741fps
250gr Hawk RT, Win brass, 9 12M primers, 47.5grs of 748, 2194fps
