My load books are very old and I can't buy a new one right now. I'm looking for loads with 85 and 100 grn bullets. Only powders I have are imr3450,imr 4064, imr 3031 and imr 432o. My rifle has a 22" bbl. Looking for fast and accurate. Thanks
These are not max loads, they are the most accurate loads and fastest MV based on the powders you mentioned.
*note: these results are based on...
A Sako Rifle
barrel length of 24"
Remington 91/2 primer.
Your results may be different but you can start with these loads and work around with them.
My pet load for the 100 gr. ---------100gr Sierra Game King SBT (#1560) with Remington Peters Brass and Win. WLR primer with 35 grains of IMR 4320. It is on the slower end of the spectrum at 2723 fps but it is the most accurate in my Remington 700. BTW....don't get rid of the powder. As long as you've kept it clean and dry it will keep for years. My 2 cents.
I finally found what works in this rifle. factory Remington core loktor 42 grns of imr4350 with 100 grn Rem. core lockts and 44 grns with Speer 90 grn bullets. Really shoots good and 5 deer were killed dead in their tracks with that rifle this year.
Yep, heading out for bear again . Manitoba in May.
