I got to shoot today and all I can say is not happy. 10 sets with 5 shots with each set. First 5 set is the IMR4350 75 gr VMax between 1.5 to 2 inches. Last five set H4831 75gr VMax and the same results of 1.5 to 2 inches. I'm not happen with any lookes like I will have to try something else.

One thing odd was while using the IMR4350 third set, two rounds where 1000 to 1049 fps less than what it should have been. Since I double check my powder weight before final pour into case I find it hard to believe that I screwed up but then again anything is possible.

Will have to try somethng else to see if I can get the 75 grnr to work.

I loaded the 75 Sierra about 10 years ago and had best results with RL19,,seems like it was up close to 60gr and 3700 fps,,it wasnt real accurate,at least by the way it shoots with 100 gr bullets,,it would hold under MOA though,,

Barrel length, rifle make, primer, cartridge length, grains of powder, twist rate?

Nosler is showing no info for 75 grain bullet, 85 is lowest, and in every instance the lowest powder load was most accurate. Hodgdon and Reliant don't indicate best results.

Any heavier bullets to see if accuracy improves?

I have a 300 WInMag that absolutely will not shoot any 180 grain bullet but is lights out with 150's.

My Remington Sendero loves the 115 berger but only if the bullet is jammed to rifling. Can't do this with the 75 gr buletts

If the 75 grain is not long enough, what could be happening is the jump from brass into the lands is enough to affect accuracy. Load it out as far as you can and when seating the bullet, seat it about half stroke, rotate the case about a quarter, another half stroke, another quarter turn, then full stroke to seat the round. Tends to even out the neck tension and is one royal PIA.

And finally, that light a weight round just may not ever get the usual 25/06 accuracy.
