.204 Load data for the Sierra 39gr. BlitzKing
Permalink  
 


Im new to the Forum so I would appreciate feedback from fellow VHA members regarding loads using WW748 and using RL-10x with Sierra 39gr. BlitzKing bullets in the .204 Ruger.
I have loaded 28.0gr of WW748 in 6 Hornady cases with CCI-BR-4 primers (OAL 2.421) (T/C Encore SS bbl.) for one load, and loaded 6 cases of 24.8gr. of RL-10X w/BR-4 primers for the other load (also in Hornady cases) (OAL 2.430)---Have not chronographed/shot them yet. 
Its -10degrees herecry in Illinois, so I wont be chronographing these loads (6 cartridges each) any time soon but thought someone out there may have tried these loads a variation of them. 
My OAL with the 39gr. BlitzKing to make contact with the rifling is 2.450 in the T/C Encore bbl. 
BTW my barrel length is 26".

Welcome to the Forum giterdone.

Here's one person who has used what your looking for:

I've got a Ruger HB Varmint and a Remington LVSF in .204, and have had excellent success with RL-10X and Blitzking 39gr and Berger 35gr loads.

He didn't state how many grains of powder he was using.  Other .204 shooters hopefully will chime in with other suggestions.

Welcome to the Forum giterdone !

I don't use them loads in my 204 but I do reload for the 204 with 28.5gr of H4895 with a Rem 7 1/2 bench rest primer with the 39gr bullets.
I think they are flying around 4100fps.  Not to many things will get away from that bullet I can tell you that.

MIke I am sure he wanted to tell you 27.5grs.
That case will not hold 72.5grs less that is really really fine powder he is talking about.

28.0 of H4895 works real good. Watch that RL10x in hot weather or a hot chamber, it gets "frisky" with heat! Had some I loaded up on a PD shoot and if you let them sit long in a hot chamber it will blow the primer.

I load the Sierra 39 gr. Blitz King with 27.6 grs of Varget useing W.W. cases and CCI bench rest primers,this gets me 3690 fps and 1/2" at 200yds.This load is used by 2 of my friends shooting a 204 and they both shoot under 1" at 100 yds.
Hope this helps,Dont forget to clean your flash hole and uniform the primer pocket aww

Shooterjon you are right on about prepping the primer pockets and flashholes on ww brass I have found it necessary to also outside neck turn them too. I should have spent the extra money on Nosler brass.

Good evening chaps,

I shoot a Sako 75-I varmint in .204Ruger (1:12 twist, 22' bbl). The 39gn Blitzking is my bullet of choice and gives superb groups as well as killing power. My load:

Hornady Cases
Fed 210M primer
27.5gn N135
OAL (to ogive) 1.890'

they do around 3900fps and group in the .14's


(apologies for the picture quality). The group was shot from dog-gone-good bags on the hood of my truck, on a very cold january day.

Got some Nosler cases as well and a bunch of RL10x, so I shall try and see what they can do.

best wishes,

Finman

The 39 gr is one of my favorite bullet in my AR 204. It likes them.

It's not the powder you are looking at, but 26.6 grs of AA2015 and 39gr Sierra BK will shoot inside a dime at 100 yds out of my Howa all day long.

Bea175,

Please tell us about that gun. Looks wonderful to me. I have been thinking about buying something like that. Who made it. Approximate cost? How do you like it. What did you do to customize it. I am highly interested and do not know much about AR type guns. What kind of trigger?

Thanks,

Jon
