Wow, I've read where primers have made a difference, but this may be the first time I've seen it. Good work! If group 4 above will repeat, I'd say you're just about done with this load development.
Those odd low shots really bugged me as I didn't think it was me which drove me down the path of trying different primers. I've done this before with my 6.5 Creed where the CCIBR2's outshot the Fed210M in the same load. First time I've tried 3 different primers as the only variable in a load.Wow, I've read where primers have made a difference, but this may be the first time I've seen it. Good work!

4 shots across Magnetospeed yesterday morning, Avg Vel 2842 FPS for the 49.7gr H4895 165gr Peregrine load. Other details a few posts prior.Ok, found the right thread this time...
Been awhile since I’ve posted any additional info. Work, kids, life etc has been way too busy the past couple of months. I was able to sneak away to the range the other morning to verify actual drops for the 165gr Peregrine load. 1.5” group at 300 yards was a pleasant surprise, using a rest but was in prone position.
1.5 inches high at 100 puts me 9-9.5 inches low at 300, basically dead on at 175 - 200 yards. PH says longest shot will be 200 meters, I’m not touching it after adjusting a bit from the right orange target to the black target. Next post with the peregrines will hopefully be of a fully expanded bullet dug out of an African critter of some type in late July!
