Here's my data, Copied & Pasted from the Hodgdon Powder sticky:


Hodgdon Longshot
DT 200gr WFNGC
Starline Brass
CCI300 Primers
1.255 OAL
6" LWD Barrel
Wolff 22# Spring
88* F, Sea Level

8.0gr:
1210
1235
1228
1236
1242
Average: 1230
ES: 32

8.2gr:
1244
1246
1250
1250
1247
Average: 1247
ES: 6

8.4gr:
1217
1243
1254
1246
1262
Average: 1244
ES: 45

I am really happy with the consistency of the 8.2gr load, which is Hodgdon's listed max. I have 2k WLP's on the way, and I may pick up some CCI350's to see if that will help kick up my velocities. With a 1247fps average for a 200gr bullet, there's nothing really to complain about. But as always, I want more...

I am pretty happy that 8.2gr of Longshot load beats DT's factory loaded 200gr WFNGC's out of my gun. Here's what DT's ammo did out of my G20L the same day:

1199, 1220, 1173, 1227, 1216
Average: 1207
ES: 54
