It looks like Winchester is discontinuing the WXR?
H-870 being dropped
Been looking at Hodgdon Retumbo possibly for another slower powder to look at
or Imr 7828 what do you think

WXR is still available at a few outlets, and I`d grab some if it were me. I bought a 10 pound case of the stuff.

H4831sc was the go to powder in 2 previous 270 WSM`s I loaded for if you are looking to purchase something locally.

Tim-

Your recipe for the H-4831sc?

I shot mine today with 66.5 and 130 BTs at 3175 but it had a sticky bolt and flat primers. This was in an A-Bolt II and 75 degrees.

Fed premium 140 AB's in factory round went 3178 fps and 3/4 moa.

Suggestions?

Thanks.

Edit Reason: error in fps

That rifle of yours is showing pressure signs earlier than any 270 WSM I have loaded for.

I usually take them a little past where you hit pressure.

If you have a lot of rounds on the barrel, a carbon buildup can cause early signs of pressure, so give it a really good cleaning.

Unfortunatly carbon is the hardest to remove.

If you have been keeping it clean, then a tighter bore might cause it, or a faster lot of H4831sc.

Tim, you need to chunk that Dasher. Here's a link to an article on one of the shooters I was talking to at the last shoot about the BRX. BRX rules! I just hope mine will do anywhere close to his. It might, but I might not. Seriously, they're almost the same but poor folks like me need to go with the BRX because the dies are cheaper.

I already have dies, bought them back when I ordered the reamer.

That little Dasher has had its share of victories.

Don`t count out a Dasher till the fat lady sings.........

That is a beautiful rifle and group.

I've got a similar model stock on order from the same producer only in the camo laminate. I looked at that rifle at the last shoot and got some info from him on loads and fireforming. He's a nice guy and willing to help a newcomer. I've already seen some nice Dasher groups too so get to building.
