Curious if you have chrono data on this? Or is this one he's used for a while? The Lyman book lists that as a max load while the Alliant book doesn't list Blue Dot with a 230 gr projectile.
I unfortunately don't have a chronograph. When we went to the range though I ran a mag full through one of my 1911's, my logic being that if they cycle well through it they'd work in anything. They seemed accurate, hit where I was aiming, and felt softer than my loads using Titegroup.

My Frankford Arsenal Intellidropper should be delivered this afternoon, so I’ll be doing some test loads with a few different powders for my 6.5CM. I got a few pounds of Winchester StaBall 6.5 and a few pounds of Hybrid 100 that I’d like to test out. I also have some H4350 that has given me the best results so far.
I will mostly be loading 130 grain Sierra GameKings and MatchKings (hoping the MatchKings will shoot the same as the GameKings), but I’ll probably also load up some ELD-Ms and some Hornady SSTs just for giggles.

The Intellidropper arrived last night, as expected. I opened it up, set it on my bench, and started letting it warm up. While this was going on, I took a few minutes to get it nice and level. After a sufficient time, I ran some powder through it to see how long it would take. Then, I ran it through the ‘powder calibration’, which is supposed to help it figure out how to more quickly dispense powder.
The first ‘un-calibrated’ drop of H4350 took about 45 seconds. After calibration, it was consistently below 20 seconds.

I’ll test some other powders this evening, but I’m already happy with the purchase. It was half the cost of the RCBS Chargemaster Lite, and about 1/4 the cost of the Chargemaster 1500. On top of that, it was in stock.
