What fps are the loads you tried, what fps are the ones that work?


Out of my SBE II and M2, I cannot get acceptable patterns out of anything faster than 1500 fps, unless I hand load them, and then they are finicky to get to pattern. My guns like factory steel loads at 1425 fps, and my best patterning steel load is Lightning Steel Load #2 at 1573 fps


We need just a tad more info.
