Hi tek load data?  Same as lead Empty Hi tek load data? Same as lead

Post by lablover 2/13/2019, 4:35 pm

Going to load up some Hi tek coated bullets.  Can I use the same load data as my lead loads.  I’m assuming yes.  I’ve got some 200 gr swc and 185 gr swc and was going to use 4.0 gr of BE.  I ordered a sample from Bayou Bullets and have to say it’s a good looking product.  If anyone loads and shoots the same I’d love to hear your recipes.

I load and shoot both of those, although mine are from Acme. 4gr of Bullseye for both. The press is set up for the 185s and I do the 200s with the same setup. I've also been experimenting with 4.2 and 4.4gr of WST. I like the WST 4.2 for general purpose rounds as it works out to be a .5cc Lee scoop full. 
 One of these days I'll try out the 185s with BE 86.

If 4.0 shot well with lubed bullets it should shoot well for you wiypth coated bullets.

Velocity should be more or less the same with coated and and traditionally lubed bullets.

Accuracy is about the same, too.

I shot Bayu bullets. I loaded them to headspace on the hood of the barrel just like I did my home cast. I loaded 1500 of them. Come to find out they were 1.275" long and did not fit in some of my magazines. The reason was the front of the driving band was rounded, not nice and square like my home cast or other brands of coated bullets.

I only shoot coated bullets becausefor 20 years I was a bullet caster and shot a LOT in doors. Lead levels went up. Now they are lower becasuse coated bullets and my wet tumbler.

I Ransom Rest tested some loads made up by someone else; 2.5" @ 50 yds. 200gr Bayou coated, straight from the box, unsorted. He did a later test with bullets sorted to within .5 gr and got a further reduction in group size. R-P trimmed to .890, 4.0 WST., 1.240 OAL , crimped tp .468 , primer unknown. 731fps avg. , SD 14.   Judging from the group reduction he got by sorting by weight , tested over sandbags @25 yds. , I'd expect under 2" @ 50yds in a RR.  Good bullets.

I use Bayou's 185 grain swc for my 45's have used both 4.6 grains of w231 and have since switched to 3.8 grains of Bullseye.  I use mixed brass and crimp to .464-465.  I like Bayous bullets.  My 45 is a Salyer built Springfield GI with a Kart NM barrel.  The Bayous run really clean even with Bullseye powder.
