  1. Hi all, I have a 27,5“ (700 mm) Heym CPQ coated barrel and would like to shoot Lapua 180 gr Scenar-L put of my 7mm/.284 Win. The barrel has 8,7“ (220 mm) of twist. I am currently using N160 and getting 2769 fps (844 m/s) wirh 52,1 grs. The powder is completely burnt in the barrel. However, I also read many posts with recommendations for N165.The powder doesn’t seem to burn completely - purely mathematically - inside my 27,5“ barrel.What are your experiences with the two powders in shorter barrels?BestUwe
  2. I started experimenting with N160 in 6.5CM The book max for 139 Scenar is 42.1gr at 2.717" COAL. I got a bit surprised when I heard a cracking noise of compressing powder as the data don't indicate it should be compressed... What's even more interesting is that Scenar 136L data go up to 46.0gr... Anyone have experience with compressed loads of N160? TIA, Michal
