I'm getting ready to start loading for my new Lott. My intention is to get Woodleigh 500 grain softs and Hornady 500 grain solids shooting as close to the same point of aim as possible. With all of the disparity in data, I think I'm going to have to use a chrony to sort it out. Below are some examples from Nosler, Hornady and Woodleigh loading manuals with H4895. I understand that different bullets have different load parameters, but the Nosler and Hornady data seem conservative and the fact that the Woodleighs show an additional 4 grains to attain the same velocity has me a little baffled. (Not to mention that Woodleigh's starting loads are well above the max listed by the others) I'm not trying to hot rod the loads. I'd be satisfied with an honest 2150 fps. Does anyone have any experience with actual velocity information that they can share? I've never used a chronograph in developing loads. I'm usually happy with something in the middle of the listed loads that provides good accuracy. Looks like it's finally time to join the modern reloading world!
