    RL16 is sort of between Rl15/Varget and H4350. It's a bulky powder and fills up a case fast, good bad or otherwise, but a very good powder well worth trying.

    I am using hydroformed Lapua brass as well (formed in Whiddon hydro die).

    Where did you start your ladder initially to work up to your 32.2 gr Varget load? Did you go right to your ladder with the newly formed brass, or did you run everything through with a lower charge to finish forming the brass and sharpen the shoulder?

    i started at 31.4 grains, based on what others around me are shooting. found the load I usually at 32.8 grains. Barrel sped up a bit after break in and i5 seems like the 2nd firing on the brass is a tiny bit faster as well. I ended up dropping my charge to 32.2. Sd is under 5 from 31.1 to 31.4

    last group measured 2.76 inches at 1100 yards. this rifle was built for PRS use and will likely never see a bench. But I can definately see how this barrel would probably do well.

    Been lurking a while, gents.

    Have a couple of questions that are kind of off subject.

    Have any of you shot the Dasher in a shorter barrel? I'm thinking 18"-22".

    If you have, what velocities have you been getting with 95s, 105s, 110s, etc?

    I'm planning on building a short(er) Dasher rifle that will be suppressed 90% of the time. It will be used for PRS style and long range rucking type matches.

    Thanks in advance!

    Would appreciate a look at what you've compiled as well. This is my first Dasher!

    Regards,

    32.6 I think and 32.9 gr. of Varget.
    110 SMK
    205M primer

    Shot the 32.9 load in a match with windy switching conditions at 300 yards and one wind flag out of 14 shooters. I came in 2nd with a 397 17X. 1st place had a 397 23x.
    I am going to move the bullet out 10 thou. more for the next match and move to 33 gr. of Varget. 3rd Saturday of this month I'll report back.
    Very close to 3000 fps right now.
