I have been working up a load with the newer Shooters world Tactical Rifle powder. Yesterday I ran newer Hornady once fired brass. I sized deprived and trimmed to length. Load data stated starting load of 25 gr for 2447 and max of 32 for 3008. No barrel length stated. I loaded 5-31.0,5-31.5,and 5-32.0
I was shooting my 12 in no name barrel suppressed. 31.0 avg 2470
31.5 avg 2515
32.0avg 2535
Today I bumped up over max as the primers were showing absolutely no flattening . Well rounded edges.
32.5 avg 2578
33.0 avg 2610
Primers still look great. By the way primers are CCI#41. Accuracy was stupid good. Both 32.5 and 33.0 were less than an inch. I will load a few more 33.0 to check when the heat gets here.

Interesting, do you have any data using the same gun and same bullet using other 6.8 compatible powders?

It would be nice to have similar data from other powders to compare your "Shooters world Tactical Rifle" powder to.

Great info- been tempted by the shooters world powders but wanted some feed back, thank you for this. I stick with benchmark for 556 and 68. Not quite as fast but meters great in a Dillon 650 and is good on accuracy.

Yes I do .30.5 of AA2200 gets 2575
31 of H322 gets 2556
Factory Gold dots get 2609
So Tactical Rifle get about the same velocity as factory Gold dots.

Just for your info. Tactical Rifle is a fine ball powder and meters like water.

Shot some of the 33 gr Tactical Rifle, CCI41,newer Hornady brass,and 90 gr Gold dots in my 2 16 inch barrels. Results in Wilson combat 16 in 1/11average 2750.
Anderson 1/10 average 2720
Accuracy was outstanding both barrels shot the load around 1 inch.Primers looked good and round on the edges. I also shot the same load in FC brass results was Wilson 1-11 2700 and Anderson 1/10 2650.
funny how different brass makes that much difference. The reason to keep your brass separated to make more accurate loads. The accuracy on the FC bras was about the same. Love the accuracy of the 90 gr Gold dots.

Don't forget to weight Hornady brass and check head stamps because some Hornady brass is made by A&B and has more space than that which is made by Hornady . Which brass were you using ? Hornady made or S&B made ?

I don’t think it’s SB. It’s newer looking Hornady headstamp. I have some of the SB, Hornady marked SB,Hornady marked on the outside of the head, and some SB with large primer pocket.

X man has a post showing the deffent Hornady head stamps . I think the Hornady made have 6.8 and S&B have 6,8 . I have both kinds and 6,8 are lighter and hold more powder. 6.8 are heavier and hold less than 6,8 or S&B . None of my Hornady made by S&B have S&B on them .
