Greeting all,
After using Bullseye and W231 for a long time, I bought a couple of lbs of Titegroup today. I do not own or have access to a chrony. I am using H&G #68 LSWC 200gr bullets. Approximately how many grains do I need to still make major?

Also, what are the burn characteristics of Titegroup compated to W231?

thanks in advance for any help/info/tips/advice,
gunny

From the Hodgdon website:
200 gr Speer JHP/5.2 gr Titegroup/884 fps
230 gr Hornady FMJ/4.8 gr Titegroup/818 fps

Expect about +30 fps using similar weight cast lead bullets with these powder charges. Titegroup burns faster than WW231.

You will need 4.6 to 4.7 grs. with an OAL of 1.260". You might want to purchase a reloading manual. Lazer Cast bullets has a pretty good one.

Thanks for the info guys. I have a couple of good quality load manuals. I just don't have any data that is specific to H&G #68 bullets. Would either of you know a resource for this?

Sometimes I think I should just break down and buy a chrony. Then again, I wouldn't really use it enough. Thanks again for the info! gunny
