Hi all. I'm brand new to this site so forgive me if I screw up!! I am a Target Rifle shooter, so operate from 300 - 1100 yard ranges. I have been trying for some time to get my bullets (Sierra MK Palma 2156) up near the 3000fps mark but get to high pressures at about 2900fps using Vit N140. I'm using a nearly new 32'' Border barrel, 1:12 twist. with the bullet 20 thou off the lands (coal 2.905''). The Quickload programme says 45.6 grn of N140 will get me to 2919fps with a pressure of just under 55 thousand psi. More than that and the pressures climb pretty high. Then I discovered SwissReloader RS52 powder! Quikload indicates a 48.9 grn load of RS52 will get me up to 3,002 fps but with a chamber pressure of only 52,355 psi - does this sound right?? Does anyone have any reloading experience with this powder? if so, let me know if it's as good as it sounds as I'd also like to try it for heavier pellets too, 175's maybe. Cheers & sorry to ramble on a bit.
