Hi Folks. I've been posting up questions revolving around the 22BR recently. http://forum.accurateshooter.com/threads/new-22br-coming-which-dies.3979615/ http://forum.accurateshooter.com/threads/are-the-90s-worth-it-in-a-22br.3977792/ I also posted up the new stock I made for my 22-250, which was burned out and I rebarreled to 22BR: http://forum.accurateshooter.com/threads/new-stock-for-my-22-250.3978615/ And I even got a new scope for it to replace the ancient Burris Signature 8-32: http://forum.accurateshooter.com/threads/sightron-10-50x60mm-svss-ed-moa-h-review.3980390/ Well, the gunsmith called me up with some excellent news Friday afternoon: my new barrel was ready! So for the first time ever, I loaded up my reloading equipment in the truck and took it all out to where I shoot with me. It's about a 75 mile, 1h10m drive, and I really wasn't sure what would work and what wouldn't with this new-to-me cartridge. I started with Reloader 17: At 29gns, 88ELDs hard jammed, my magnetospeed showed 2900fps. At 30gns, 3000fps At 30.5gns, 3050fps At 31gns, 3075fps The whole ladder grouped about like this at 150yards. The far stray high left was the first shot, then I dialed down and over for the rest. Shot one at a time, with a ~5minute reloading break between each shot and no particular care taken to watch my wind flags. I stopped at 31gns as that was above my target speed (I only really wanted 3000 to 3050). Nasty storm clouds, with lightning and heavy rain were charging up on me, so I loade dup 5 more rounds at 31gns, hard jam, and shot this group a bit hastily: 3 all tightly knotted together then I threw 2 out of the group. I'm extremely hopeful that without the pressures of an oncoming storm, and a bit of careful tuning, that I can get five shots to go into at least the 2s. Out there, it looked like everything was fine. When I got home and carefully inspected the brass, I discovered some very faint ejector marks: Right over the "6" is the faint ejector mark. The proud primer crater happened to every piece, from 29 up to 31gns but never got worse. EDIT: I forgot to mention the most important part! I absolutely love this cartridge. I have very limited experience with it, but so far, it is a really sweet little thing to shoot!
