Lifetime titanium benefactor
Good to see more real world reports! Shouldn't be be much difference between the bushmaster and plainsmaster in terminal performance, I hope!
Received a shipping notification after placing the order last night last night, good service!
Will start with H4350 as that has worked very well for me in the past shooting 165gr Nosler Partitions. Will have to see how the case capacity vs powder volume vs velocity works out with the long 165gr. I have plenty of other powder choices on hand.
Definitely start lower by at least 5%. The Peregrines will be longer than a Partition and thus less case space. If you jump to your Partition load, you may very well be way over a safe pressure.
Only meant that H4350 would be my initial powder choice. I'll start with the initial Barnes TTSX 165/8 loads and work up from there.
Good deal. Sorry I didn't mean to be condescending. I made the mistake of over stuffing a case with a TSX in front for a .300RUM I had about 8 years ago. What's the old saying of God looking out for those who are stupid? It wasn't pretty, but fortunately no one was hurt. It was a load with a normal lead bullet was safe.
Phil, they produce excellent bullets. I currently only use their solids in my 500NE, but had a hunter use their VRG-3 bullet, which I think is the name of their soft bullet, on a Cape Buffalo hunt with me. Their " softs" is a full copper bullet with a brass plunger to assist with opening among impact. We recovered two of the bullets from the buff and their performance was flawless. The only reason I have not moved to any of their other calibers is because I'm a don't fix if it ain't broke kind of guy. This does not mean I wont start using them in the future.
@cmnhunt , any chance you could post a photo of that bullet we recovered from your buff?
Ed, if you can get a hold of them, the 165's in your 30-06 will take anything that might cross your path, even Eland.
