This is a direct copy of a post I posted over at Brian Enos forums. As you all know I have started casting. Well my Lee Mold is dropping 118 gr bullets that need to be seated at 1.080 to be below the first grove on the bullet. You guys know how I hate to load short bullets but I can adjust if I have to. Anyway, below is my post from B.E. Forums. Any advice is greatly appreciated as the load data I have is useless it appears. I have the old Scotts data. It list 125 gr lead data @ 1.100 OAL, 3.2gr-3.6 gr Max FPS 871 . You have got to be kidding me. I have been loading MG bullets with 4.1 grs at 1050fps for a while. My lead bullets weigh out at 118.7 grs so they are light for the mold. They should be 124 gr. I have to seat these bullets at 1.080" which seems really short to me but thats the only way to get the first band below the case. I don't have to make PF but I would like them to at least be close. The new Scotts data does not list a bullet type. Only a Max Load or 4.2 grs for a 115 gr bullet. I talked to Accurate Powder a while back and they said Well, the new data does not list type of bullet. Old data list the LRN 125gr @ 871 FPS and 31000 CUP but the 124 gr FMJ RN @ 1028 fps and 31600 CUP. I just don't understand the High Cup reading with the LRN in the 125gr bullet and the low FPS rating. I am thinking of switching powders. This is just for practice ammo. I really like the load I worked up for my match ammo. If I go with the old data I might as well not even try to use Solo 1000. 3.6 gr and a max FPS of 871 is just a joke.
