    10 x -which primer

    What is the primer of choice for 10x powder. I have tried fed 205, rem 7 1/2 , br-4 and cci 400. CCI 400 seems to be the most accurate.Was wondering what people who shoot this powder may recommend. Thanks

    shot 26.8 very well to day at cactus practice
    too much blustery wind for my skills
    a lester suggested load for my lot
    28.1/.2 did well, but spent most of my time at 26.8.
    has not beaten n133 at 28.9 in my gun

    28.3 shot a .2 at the lands
    26.8 shot a .16 at the lands
    nothing better in or out, but the winds hid potential.
    then my chargemaster lite DIED.

    The cci 400 has a thinner cup from what I read yesterday. I was up to 29.2 grains with a Barts 68 dominator with the cci 400 . at that point the primers were getting ugly, but no bolt lift issues. 53Degrees/30% Hum. I also noticed ( by micrometer readings ) the case head diameter started to increase at 28.8. That being said I still had best accuracy at 27.5 Grains. 4 shots nice little hole with 1 out a little giving me .200 group at 100 yards stolle cub- 18 inch Krieger 13.5 twist. I think the fed. primer is a little hotter than the cci so I am going to try a litter charge than 27.5

    Thanks, Bruce

    a follow up on the chargemaster lite.
    it appears it got an attack of static...
    wiped it and all the pcs off, turned back on and all is well
    just strange.

    Not a benchrester, I bet.. A benchrester is one who shoots a rifle, a benchrest rifle, off(from a bench) at the range w/ special rests-front and rear to support the rifle. Rifle may well weigh 15+ POUNDS.

    not
    only one class of 4 allows 15 lbs or more in short range br( real br not "lets make it fair" br)
    600 and 1000 yd each have a heavy class.
