The new 433-415GC bullets that Mt Sourdough sent me , today I tried them with 40 and 41 grains of Varget as well as 35 and 36 grains of Varget .
The 40 grains of Varget put three in .875" at 100 yards . The 41 grain group opened a bit and they may have been my fault . The 35 grain RL7 group was 1.875" while the 36 grain load at 100 yards was 2.125" . To be honest for this rifle with this bullet the 35 grain load of RL7 is acceptable in my book as I do not consider this rifle/load combo much more then a 100-150 yard setup .
Cycling of the new bullet thru the loading port and into the chamber is good bit better then the bullets from the older 433-425GC mold .
Took the Chrnoy with me and clocked all the Huckleberry bullets new and old today . But the data is in my range bag so that will have to wait until later this evening !

I want to ultimately test the bullet with above mentioned powders, plus H322, H335, H4895, IMR3031, Win748 and some others just to get some data with some of the more popular powders with 444 shooters.
