Does anybody have any good Blackout powder load data. Is it neck in neck with 1680?

Specifically for a Mcgowan Savage barrel that will be loaded out longer than an AR mag length.

Yep got a fair amount of data- what bullet are you looking for? Faster bullet speeds with 100 and up and less pressure. Best of all with lee seater you can compress powder down with bullet and not leave the "ring" in bullet tip like the hornady dies do- SW blackout doesn't seem to mind a fair amount of compression

I have a couple hundred 100g ab and even more 90g GD that will be my primary hunting load. I will probably target practice with 90g TNT.

Haha! The probably only 3 bullets I have no data for. 100 AB were very hard to find for a longntime- gold dots were the same and still are. Tnt's, with how hard my 24" throws them would be a varmint bullet only. So I guess I can't help you much there, sorry

I also have some 95gr TSXX and might try something like the 115g smk.

Hornady also has a hpbt 115 match grade. I also might try the Amax,SST,or GMX but I am not sure of there expansion ablility at the lower velocities of the wlv.

I put together a PDF with a bunch of 300BLK info and load data, but not much under 110gr.  If interested PM your email.

Thanks but I'm referring to the Shooters World Blackout powder that is similar to A1680. I will take a look at it though as I have a couple 300blk ar's.

from my testing sw blackout can use the same charges as 1680, it may max out about half grain sooner but pushes the bullets faster than 1680

Are you loading the 110 accubond? If so what amount of jump do yo recommend?

Would 24.4g BO be too crazy for a 100g loaded long. I have seen up to 25g recommended and I don't want to start too low and use up to many of these 50cent bullets.

What powder do you recommend for the lighter bullets?

Very limited experience with the 110AB (got them right before deer season), only used it in my 20" AR, and I don't like doing a lot of testing in winter. I would maybe start 23/23.5 gr. and work up with the 100AB, for lighter bullets I use 1680 and 2200 in my 14" wlv contender and my 18" savage. Actually 2200 was my go to powder before I started using sw blk. I had better speed and a ton less pressure signs than 1680 in my savages, especially my 24". I generally like to shoot bullets that are easy to find and can hunt deer with, but I do really like the nosler AB's, so do friends', family, and my freezer. I do understand not wanting to do a ton of testing with the noslers though, but sometimes thats just what you gotta do.
