Well I have been at it . I Chronographed Lot #6. I have been shooting 27.7 gr. and doing good. I have been winning more
consistently. Lot 6 is slow but very workable. 27.7 is only on average 3189 fps. I am very tempted to shoot at 28.4 avg. 3321.
I hesitate because 27.7 is treating me well. I want more velocity. I am tempted to raise the bar. BUT my cases are doing great. No
clicks. No tightness. Should I stay put and stop this temptation and possiblely crash. What would you do? I have a good supply of
lot 6. Anyone else using this lot and tell me how you are doing. I know there has been talk of lot to lot consistency. I am
staying put. Feedback please. Michael

If you're winning and grouping consistently at 27.7, why change? The target trumps the chronograph every time.

Why would you change what's working.
The paper don't know how fast the bullet is going.😜

Michael,

I agree with the above replies; I am shooting 29.4 grains behind 65/68 grain BTs from Barts in my 6BR. I'm getting 3300 with single digit SD and an ES of about 20 for weighed (RCBS standard 5-0-5 scale). This has worked for me quite well; I only shoot 100 yard VFS at the moment, so YMMV. Brass is fine at 20 reloads so far, but then, I anneal every 3 or 4 reloads.

Well...if you're not winning everytime, you need to experiment a bit.

Sounds like I need to experiment in the lower node. I tend to shoot it in the higher nodes. 28.6 up to 29.3
In the 3400 plus range.

Lapua cases hold up if the die is a good match. Not so much if the die over sizes. A whole weekend plus a practice day before the match with 20 cases is good enough for me in case life. 15-20 x fired

Just curious, why do you want more velocity?

I like going fast. Used to a 22 that shoots 3500+

I prefer to look at chronograph results on the target. They dont give a score for chronograph speed
