.348

ginger49023ginger49023 Member Posts: 655 ✭✭✭✭
I have the components to load .348 aside for the powder.
.250 grain barnes
used once brass
my problem is finding any loading data, pretty tough.
I am hoping to use IMR 4350 of which I already have on hand.
Any ideas.

    Well you could start by looking up data on Hodgon's website,
    or go buy a loading manual. (old one at a second hand book store)
    250 GR. BAR FN Hodgdon H4350 .348" 55.0 2157 31,000 CUP 59.5 2328 35,700 CUP

    48th Ed Lyman list a suggested starting load of 54.0 gr of IMR 4350 for a 200gr jacketed bullet and a max of 60.0gr. for the .348 Win.
    Dang!!!! That's 30=06 territory there. Taking that into consideration, suggested starting load for a 220gr '06 load using IMR 4350 is 49.0gr.

    All that being sayed. Lee suggests H4895 starting at 42.3 with a max of 47.0gr in a 250gr jacketed bullet in the .348.
    There is a load using H (NOT IMR)4350 starting at 49.7gr and max as 55.0gr. for the .348.

    Your results may vary.

    Seems the Hogdon and IMR powders have nearly the same burn rate, They MAY be interchangeable.
