I've watched all those. Kinda why I don't have one already. When I bought my valkyrie every video on you tube that talked about brass life said they would blow primer pockets in 1 or 2 loadings. I've loaded everything from 40 grain to 88 grain bullets hot and haven't blown a primer pocket yet. It's hornady brass, some have been loaded 20 times. Hagar is an affordable available option. Not knocking his experience but some of the problems he was having I was quite sure I could fix. The main reason I haven't tried the 22 nosler is because I didn't like the sound of that much powder with a little 223 rim. I've already ordered nosler brass but see Hagar is in stock. Definitely a good option.

Just came from a range session, load development. 22in proof research barrel, 1:8.

29 gr benchmark, 50 gr vmax. 3450fps avg. 29.5 is max but the signs show up.

32 gr win748, same bullet and col. 3650avg. Starting to show signs.

These were the 4th time I've used these dogtown cases.
Both sub Moa. Was able to reach max with 748.

Overall it's a lil pressure sensitive, but it performs. Walking the pressure line your gonna get a couple hundred fps over 223 running lighter bullets.

Your 748 velocity is what I'm looking for Tjkiller. If the 1:8 white oak does that I'll be happy.

I got some cfe223 , should be up there too. The groups with 748 was good, ES was pretty high, I'm gonna play with the seating depth.. now the just fit in the mag. I will say the hot 748 loads had noticeably more recoil.

Is 748 a powder you use a lot. I like win. 760. I noticed the only winchester data for the 22 nosler is staball 6.5. Not one of my favorites but I have some. I never have tried 748. Sooner or later I plan on doing some comparing and make a valkyrie load with 760 and eventually the 22 nosler if the valkyrie load turns out. I 80% stuck a bolt doing that when I got my 6.5 creedmoor. There was very little load data and I tried AR comp. It was a little hot. Lol

That was first time I tried it. Data was on the nosler web page.
