Current load 100 gr. loose T7 with GT Bullet 305 gr. .430 and MMP sabot.

Chrony at 1800 fps

Am very happy with this current load for accuracy and killing power but my personal problem is I love to shoot and experiment with different loads, bullet styles, etc. T7 will be the only powder I will use. I have Winchester 209's and that will be the only primer I will use. I will use a spit patch to clean and a patch to dry between each shot. Ill shoot 3 shot for every powder charge.

I have from years ago 250 count of 450 gr. PR bullets Ultimate 1 conical hollow point in 450 gr. They have a hollow base. I did shoot a few of them last summer and they were fair in accuracy with 1.75 inches apart at 75 yards. Good enough for where I hunt but as stated, I like to shoot. No wads or cornmeal. That was with 100 gr. (v) of loose T7.

1. I intend to start with 70 gr. (v) loose T7 and move up in 5 gr. increments.

2. How many gr. (v) of cornmeal. Do I need to try multiple volumes of cornmeal.???

3. Wads, which wads and what size.

so my first round of testing will go something like this.

70 gr. (v) T7 x many gr(v) cornmeal 450 (gr) conical. take 3 shots and evaluate.

75 gr. (v) T7 x many gr(v) cornmeal 450 (gr) conical. take 3 shots and evaluate.

80 gr. (v) T7 x many gr(v) cornmeal 450 (gr) conical. take 3 shots and evaluate.

85 gr. (v) T7 x many gr(v) cornmeal 450 (gr) conical. take 3 shots and evaluate.

90 gr. (v) T7 x many gr(v) cornmeal 450 (gr) conical. take 3 shots and evaluate.

95 gr. (v) T7 x many gr(v) cornmeal 450 (gr) conical. take 3 shots and evaluate.

100 gr. (v) T7 x many gr(v) cornmeal 450 (gr) conical. take 3 shots and evaluate.

Frankly if I dont see the accuracy I want by the time I hit 100gr.(v) of T7 I will not go more.

Ill repeat the above with wads.

Any thought, guidance, ideas, will be appreciated.
