When I went from H322 and CCI 400 to AA2200 I had ejector marks. I then used CCI #41, no pressure issues.For virtually anything I've found AA2200 the best powder overall and I've tried a few. I also saw a sharp increase in accuracy using magnum primers with 2200 compared to standard. That comparison was with CCI450 and 41's compared to CCI400 primers. 25% to 50% smaller groups with mags.
You mind sharing your recipe. I have a hundred or so of the 120 fusions sitting in the closet for a few years now and never did anything with them. I have about 6lbs of H335 left over and need to use some of it since I don't load any 5.56 any more.Loyd, Like J.D. and a few other folks, I bought a goodly number of the fusions when they were available on Gunbroker. They have been such a great hunting bullet, I don't use them for busting rocks and ringing steel anymore, as we likely won't ever see any more. I'm hoping the 130 fusions I have ordered will be as good.
I don't have any use for anything SST after having one in 7-08 vaporize on the ribs of a nice buck, without even leaving a blood trail. After several hours of searching a large chunk of the farm before finding him I decided to go back to better constructed bullets with slightly poorer b.c.'s.
There's quite a bit of data on here by folks that like that bullet, though most of it is on A2200.
I run the 120 fusions with CFE loaded long at 2600 fps OAL: 2.41". They are pretty accurate at that length in my barrel.Woodstock, my most accurate load has been 28.0 gr. H-335 in Fed. cases and a mag primer, at around 2,400 fps. I've run them up above 30.0 and 2,550 with light swipes. This from a PSA 16" cl light profile barrel over a f-1 Chrony that may or not be accurate. These bullets vary in weight by as much as 5 gr., so sorting by weight is necessary for any real accuracy, and they're still just a moa bullet in my rifle. I ran these at 2.270 oal, which puts the ogive slightly in the case mouth, but with a light fc it doesn't seem to matter.
Since I've cut a couple of mags and taken a die grinder to a lower, I'll probably load them out and try some Lever or Comp with them. I've replaced that upper with one of H's nice scout barrels and haven't really had time to break it in properly.
