WST Load For 185JHP 50 Yard?

Post by Olde Pilot on 10/6/2015, 11:31 am

Been using 4.5 Bullseye with good results. But just ran out of BE. Have WST. Suggested load from you experts out there?

I would start at 4.4 and work up 0.1 grain at a time. My guess is 4.6 would be good but WST is better with cast heads.  

If you have W231 5.0 to 5.3 is a good alternative to Bullseye.

WST is very close in burn rate to Bullseye, use the same load.

4.6 of WST, Starline brass, WW primer, OAL 1.221, fairly heavy crimp, works well for me, and my wad gun is somewhat fussy.

I use the same load in my Ball gun, under the new rules.

I have been running 4.8gr WST COL of 1.25 behind Nosler 185 FMJ off of sand bags and getting 2" groups out of my Les Baer. I just won a Ransom Rest on eBay. Be interesting what the results will be with the Ransom Rest. I just wish I was a good enough shot to reap the benefits of this load!

They will be about as good as the base you attach it to...
