308Win Subsonic
« on: June 10, 2018, 11:30:38 AM »
This is one groop I shot last year with my Sako AII 308Win. I'm trying to devellop a HP subsonic round that shoot sub MOA groops at 200m. I'm having a bit problem with this bullet, they tend to wabbel and give me oval hole in the paper. I have been testing at 125m at the range where i can set up my targets.

The setup is:

Sako AII 308Win
Hausken Supressor
IOR Recon schope
Chinese bipod
Beanbag baksuport shooting prone.

14x14cm paper targets @ 125m
Cronograph @ 3m (Chrony Beta)
Traget analyse with Range Buddy PRO

This load is:

Mould; TLC313-150-RF RG4 cavity 2GC 2PB (RD)
Bulle; PB powdercoated

Powder: Vihtavuori N32C 7.0 grain
Brass: Norma 308Win
Primer: CCI 250 magnum primer

The neck was expanded (with .309 x .305 Exp. Plug i think) 

V0 about 320 m/s (I don't have the crono data any more)

What's the twist rate on your barrel?

I have tried to mesure it, and the avrage of 20 mesurment was about 300mm (298mm i think). I think it might be a bit to slow twistrate but it is the orginal barrel made back i 1983...

I have NOT sorted the bullet buy weight, there can be airpocket in the ones that wabbel the most..

If you are running bullets at slow speeds in a slow twist rate barrel, that might explain bullet stability issues.

I just casted a few bullet to weigh, and 8 of 10 is within one grain, but the ones thats not are off by 2-3 grain. That might allso be a factor.

In stabillity calculator it come out with a GS of allmost 3 and 1,5 is supose to be gyro stabilzed. I know that the bullet  will be able to preforme in my rifle 0.93 moa 10 shot @ 125m is not bad. Just need to get ridd of the fliers :)

I've ordered two new moulds, HTC310-177-SP-BL2 2 cavity BT Brass and HTC310-173-FP RG4 cavity PB that i hope will do just as good :) I might order a shorter HP bullet later if I can't get them to stabilize...

I've got some bullet that was shot in to gelatin and some in wather at 50m and 125m with the same load maby I will uploade pitcure of them.

Thanks for the response

Photos added in first post.

The BNH of the bullets is about 12.5 BNH messured one year afrer it was shot on a bullet form the same batch as the red one.

The resolution in the photo is 40 division / mm exact (Calibrated AmSchope). The impretion is made with a Lee BNH die (27kg Ø3,96mm steel ball)
