I did an extensive search on all the different sites for 6.8 loading data. I took what I found and compiled it into a spreadsheet then outputted the sheets into .jpg s uploaded them to a hosting site and then link them here. Sorry for the watermarks but I wasn't going to spend a 69 dollars for the program that converts the pages to images until I know its worth it. You can still readily see all the data under them as it is inversed b & w.

Hope this is helpful. This will be add to the "facts and info chart" on the main forum when I get it updated, revamped with everything in charts, and reorganized.

If you guys have more load data that isn't up there please post it. I will update it again when we have a good amount more. I need bullet / powder / primer / OAL of round barrel / description / velocity / temperature. Even if you have one of the loads posted but used a different barrel(maker, twist, chamber,length) or at a very different temp, we could still use it. Others that have the same config will know what to expect from their config.

I will Sticky this after its viewed and it looks OK.

If you go HERE you can download the actual excel file

HERE for .pdf



It is organized in the following order: bullet, powder by burn rate fast to slow, charge size, barrel length.

Yeah,
Just imagine how much testing he could do if he had an indoor range.

Oh do I dream of such a thing. Oh man 100' indoor range. Hmmmm
I could just get a few sections of that huge corrugated pipe they use for sewers and drainage. Dig a long ditch with a backhoe and seal it at both ends. Gun range / bomb / storm / survival shelter all in one. :lol:

With that data up there anyone with any barrel can easily find a load for what ever the use is they have a need for. That is a treasure grove of data. All in one place of reference. I just hope people use it to save them a lot of trial and error.

I've been thinking about that pipe thing for years, If I ever settle down long enough that will happen.

VERY VERY Cool....

I wouldn't mind having a copy of that. If you'd like, I'd be more than happy to put it online on my blog for anyone to grab (so we don't have to pester you all the time!)

I have put up a downloadable copy of this chart in the "Articles of Interest" Forum in the Technical section. You can now download it from there.
