Does anyone have pet loads to share for their Mk V's? I have an older Japanese model with the Pendleton brake. Had it out to the range on Monday and ran some handloads over the chronograph.

500gr Hornady RN
115grs IMR4350
2550fps

Hi Canuck416,

My load which atleast duplicates the factory trajectory at 100 yds with a 500gr Hornady bullet was 110grs of 4350. Its been awhile since I've loaded some of these but I'm not sure how you got the additional 5grs in the case BUT like I said its been awhile.

The 115gr load is actually rather mild. You can go up to 120grs with that bullet/powder combo. Not that I would need to ;)

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
