After loading some 130 GameKings too COAL 2.260 I found out that a strait magazine is the only way with that COAL.
I went on a hog hunt this past weekend in north Texas, and I always load 20 in an Elander mag. Just in case I catch a sounder of multiple pigs. I usually do eradication for property owners that have coyote or pig problems. Wanted too try some 130 GameKings that I loaded for the 6.5 Grendel Sierra project. So I bought 100 and loaded them up as I did on the project COAL 2.260, Hornady brass, Benchmark 27.3gr, and CCI450 primers. They shot around .8" which I liked and the speeds were good on my 18". Anyways....I come too find out that after 7 rounds as the mag curves 2.260 is a tad long and rubs on the mag. I went with it. Should be fine right? Wrong!!!! I finally catch a hog at about 100 yards, shot, hit him, started sqealing then gets back up finally, and I go too take another shot and nothing! Had too rack my next round manually. Luckily it chambered.
Got home started inspecting my magazine and the rounds. Figured the issue is they are too long right. So I try a strait magazine and no issues. The COAL 2.260 is a bit long on the curve of the magazine, but good on a 14 round strait. COAL 2.250 just clears and doesn't rub on the tip of the projectile. COAL 2.255 Hornady SST also rubs. So the magic number for clearance on the curve of the 24 rounder is 2.250 or shorter. You might try for your self, but I tried 3 different bullets and same thing. Just food for thought.
Thanks for the read!
