    6.5 grendel

    Only took forever but I finally found a power my grendel likes, going to load up some more and sees if the other 4 loads shoot better of a more stable rest, this one was the best with the crappy set up I had

    After having good luck with the load pictures, I loaded up 40 more, 20 with mag primers and 20 with regular primers. It appears that somewhere between 24.5 & 28 grains of magic pixie dust is the sweet spot. Sorry I'm not going to name the powder because there's no listing for these loads.
    I think I might have a "loose" chamber because all my loads I have shot so far look like I'm shooting suppressed.

    Was there much difference between the two primers you used? Do you know what velocities you are running?

    The standard primer was the better group, .6 vs .8, haven't chrono'd them yet, will let you know the speed when I do

    Using a powder to slow for the cartridge will leave dirty cases. Powder not expanding the case neck fast enough to seal it in the chamber.
