    Default wc852 load data

    Does anyone have info on loads for wc852? I have @15lbs. that my dad gave me and I need reload data for various calibers from 30-06 to 22-250. If anyone can help I would appreciate it very much. I have read previous threads but I am still uncertain....

    Thanks,
    New guy

    Welcome Tony.
    That is one I have not tried and a quick search of on line sources turns up nada. I would ask over on Cast Boolits. I am positive you can get the info you need there.

    You could send an email to Pats Reloading www.patsreloading.com I know he had handled that powder and is good about finding info on his products. His website may even have some data.

    A6Tony,

    I originally bought this through Jeff Bartlett at gibrass.com He could give you the scoop on it. I'm not positive, but I believe he told us to use IMR4831 data. I have used it in quite a few cartridges and my recorded loads do point in that direction.

    There were batches that were "fast", "normal", and "slow." The batch I got was slow, and is about 4831 speed. Your powder may have noted what general speed it was. I have no experience with the other speeds.
