    322 in the 6PPC

    We have the Nationals in Phoenix coming up. Super low humidity.

    I shoot 133 in my 6PPC's. I have since the late 1990's. I have always struggled with it in Phoenix. In order to get it to Agg, I have to shoot it so darned hot that I run out of cases by mid week.

    When I first started shooting Benchrest, we shot 322. It's been so long ago I can't even remember how we loaded it.

    Maybe it's an alternative for Phoenix. Is anybody having any success with it now?

    Jackie...you've got two options. Shoot the 133 that you are familiar with and just make more cases or give 322 a try. I shot 322 for all those years, and will say that it's capable of winning but you have to know when to reduce the load a little bit...typically after you shoot a screamer and that's somewhat hard to do. The nationals are always too closely contested to tolerate a single flyer.

    If you shoot H322 find a load that works at Phoenix,then back off a little .Like Wilbur said H322 is fussy at the top.

    I just acquired 24 lbs of some early production 2015 BR, (Australian), that I tested in my Rail Gun yesterday.

    After finding what neck tension it liked, (really light), it shot pretty darned good. This stuff might work in Phoenix.

    Know quite a few guys that have had luck with LT 31 in Phoenix. Shot some 131.5 at the Cactus this year, it was pretty good also, the question is going to be how hot it gets, if it's over 95 I'll probably shoot some old t powder.

    Jackie,

    A lot of guys in Aus are using Benchmark 2 which is 2015 BR under different branding (from what I understand), with a lot of success. It is an excellent powder and has a wider tune window then 133. You are 100% about neck tension, very light is the go.

    Jackie, try RL-10X at about 27.4g (3225) AND 29.2 (3525).

    Works for me.

    Thanks, John and Jerry. I forgot about 10x.
