I just picked up a Savage MLII 50 for my daughter to shoot. I personally shoot 45’s and also have been standing next to a smokeless ML double loaded when it was shot.... split the barrel into 4 pieces...... SO, needless to say I am cautious of new loads. I recently switched from 275 to 310 grn bullets (no sabot) and from H & IMR4198 to H4895.... lower pressures, low temp sensitivity and more speed. Now, I am not a speed Demond. But, I shoot less powder of 4895 to achieve same velocity with almost 8k less pressure. With heavier bullet.
Any suggestions on this savage vs traces or loads to recommend. And anyone shoot H4895 with a load combination?
