    During these tests I've been double checking everything. AOCL is spot on. Thanks CC.

    Any of you seasoned reloader's ever heard of a powder's "breakover point" or have any knowledge of it?

    Is it a real phenomena?

    I have seen it mentioned in relation to similar reductions in velocities as 'BC is experiencing with a larger charge wgt in a given powder.

    Regards,

    Never heard or it. I'm kinda funny in my approach to reloading....old school & if it ain't broke, don't fix it. My loads for my 30-06 & 25-06 were developed over 40 years ago. They still perform to my expectations, so I don't screw around with the loads. When I got my .300 Wby, it took me a long time to get it where I was satisfied with it's performance. The only time I would look at a new load would be if I couldn't get one of the components (powder, bullet) any more.

    When you have a load (and gun) that performs like this, why screw with it. Just shoot it and enjoy!

    I can't disagree with your statement CC. BUT, I need to get it there first. You are quite the marksman and I hope to achieve the accuracy you're getting with your rifles (Nice work to you- kudos)

    It's also fun to tinker and learn new things as I am doing now so that I can shorten the learning curve when I start to reload for my other rifles as I'm still working on my first rifle with less than 1 year of reloading under my belt.
