Your problem isn't a flyer. It's inadequate photo editing. My group is much better...



Only kidding. Definitely a good node. Lots of folks on SH are reporting that IMR4451 and RL16 are both good 4350 subs. 4451 is closer to 4350 in burn rate, but RL16 allegedly gets you a few more fps. I've got an 8 lb jug of 4350, so it's a problem I don't have to worry about for awhile.

That's cooking. I was worried about my 4350 load pushing a 140 at 2780.

Historically I had H-4350 making 2800 fps out of a 24" barrel.

Speed is secondary to me. Consistency is first. Of course the faster the better, but I will keep a consistent slower load, than a less consistent faster load.
I like your thinking up

Stumbled across six 8lb containers of 4350 at my LGS Saturday. He wants $225 plus tax.

24" barrel, velocity hasn't been confirmed with chrono. I shot at 200 and 500 then used my kestrel to figure velocity based on drop, but I've shot from 100yrds out to 1280yrds with great success. Probably could go up on powder charge a lil but that load shot so good I didn't bother going any further.

I work backwards frequently, as well. You're probably know, your input MV can be wrong by up to 50 fps, and you're still on target to 500. Past that is where you can really figure out your velocity.

I agree, with staying with that load. If it's shooting well, it is difficult to venture from it. You're probably on the low node.
