Zero 185 fmj-hp short line WST loads

Post by DavidR on Mon Jul 25, 2016 5:43 pm

I'm experimenting with WST powder, having good accuracy at 50 yards with 4.6 wst. Is Anyone shooting WST with the zero 185 fmj-hp all thru a match and do you load them different for 25 yds?
If so please share your load info,

In my experience you could type Bullseye right over the top of WST and use them identically. The WST just burns a lot cleaner. Remember you don't get to download the fmj bullets as much as you would a lead bullet. I am out of WST at this time but to answer your question (kinda) I already load my 185gr as low as I feel I want to try and so would not decrease for the short line. I do shoot the 185 lots of times for the entire match.

Len ( I load everything with 4.2 gr)

I know for my EIC gun I run a lighter load of VV310.. 4.1 to be exact..

lots of options  BE, v310, 231, red dot,  tightgroup.  sort of depends on how you like the recoil of different powders..

I just started experimenting with this myself. 4.5 for long line and 4 for short seems promising. Both at 1.2 col. I'm using WST for .38 and .45 exclusively now.

WST was the replacement for Winchester 452AA, I think. I use 4.3 of 452AA with the Nosler 185JHP for service pistol, long line and short line. Works great.
