Brown truck just left !

Post by GunnyMack »

Brought me 3 pounds of powder, 20/28, Staball 6.5 and 1680.
Now if I could find 25-20 data for the 1680 , sadly I have no idea what manual back in the 90s I found the data in ! If anyone has an older manual with 1680 listed for the 25-20 I'd appreciate it!
I've found 22 hornet, bee and 450 Bushmaster data on hodgdon site.
The 20/28 will get tried in the 28 but it's mostly for 410 with Thug Slugs.
The Staball 6.5im going to try in my 257 AI, 338 WM, maybe a couple others...

bullet weight...60 gr type...Hornady flat point
powder...AA1680 primer...CCI400 brass...WW
charge....12.0 grains velocity...1875 fps
maximum charge...13.5 grains velocity...2142 fps

Thank you Walt! I only had the 12.0 start charge, didn't know a max charge, now I do. I have to go write that into my loading manuals... maybe I'll just write it on the wall by my bench- I can't lose that !! :lol:

It's labeled by Winchester but they are like you said, Hodgon produced. They have 3 flavors, 6.5, Match and HD. I got the 6.5 to try in 4 or 5 different cartridges I load. It works from 17 rem to 375 h&h .
I really prefer ball powders and H380 is a staple for me . This has temp stability and de-coppering so I figured why not try it. Just a tad slower than H380.

I wanna try it perhaps in my 260 REM and the 6.5x54 MS . At present I use IMR 4350 in the MS and seems to me I’m pushing 129 SST’s in the 260 with I believe it’s RL-22. But as I said I wouldn’t mind trying this other stuff .

Seems like the 308 family they push the Match version, I'm sure that the 6.5 would work but it is slower burn rate.
