Load for my Les Baer

Post by KBarth on 6/21/2017, 5:59 pm

First topic message reminder :

So my Les Baer finally came today, woo! Now I have to find a load for it. I already have my staring brass and my bullseye powder. Now I just need to find the best powder combination, with a zero 185gr swchp. If anyone has experience with this load. What powder weight and crimp are you using?

Oops, Terry told me 129 and 130, but I obviously mis-understood what he meant.  Thanks.   Hmm, I wouldn't even have know about Magnus Bullets were it not for you guys.  Super person, and fascinating to talk to.  I was making notes about all the things he was telling me, to sort out later.  I could have stayed on the phone with him for the rest of the day! 

I wish three years ago, I had called him instead of Speer and Hornady.

Terry will set you straight, he was shooting PPC and bullseye before I was born. I shoot with him at Columbia, nice guy and nice to be able to pick up his bullets in person to save shipping.

On my old LB frame mount, stock spring, I ran the #801 bullet at 3.8 WST for short line and 4.1 for long, seat with about 1/32" of the shoulder exposed, don't have the OAL in front of me. On my new RRA slide mount with the heavy 9000sc I had to go up to 3.9 WST for short line and of course the long line load worked fine. WST usually runs about .1-.2 grain slower than BE.

12 lb recoil spring.  3.5 gr Bullseye, Zero 185 lead SWCHP @25 yards.  Winchester primers.  4.5gr bullseye, Nosler 185gn JHP for the long line.  Dillion 550b.  Or, to make things easier, use the zeros behind 4.2gns Bullseye for 50, and adjust only the powder drop.  I have two Baer wadcutters.  My 2 cents.  -PC

If you want to get advice that involves buying their products, call the those big companies that sell stuff to every one. If you want information about precision pistol products and supplies, you generally need to call business like Terry, KC, Zero, Accuracy X, etc. 

And every gun shop I've ever been to generally does not have anyone that shoots precision pistol.  But almost every one of them will sell you a "bullseye ready" gun if you have the money. I've seen that happen with more than one new "bullseye" shooter.

If you want advice about shooting precision pistol, check with some bullseye shooters (like the forum here).  But, (as always) listen to everything, figure out what sounds reasonable, try it for yourself and then question and review the results anyway.  

(Just remember, the ratio of opinions to butts is still pretty close to 1:1 anywhere you go.)  Smile

But in general, on this forum, you will find lots of good advice.   Cool

(And "Vociferous" shoots some pretty good scores with his Les Baer.)
