    i recently picked up a gp100 in .327 fed mag. i am looking to reload for it. my newest book [speer #14] doesnt show anything for this gun. i am looking to load hornady 100grn xtp over win 296 powder. i cant find what primer is being used. any help would be apprecieted.


    i found several different sites that show a maximum 13.2 grns of 296 for muzzle velocity of 1525 but none list the primer :confused:

    Per Shooting Times Feb 2009, with the 100 gr XTP, CCI 500's were used in three loads; Federal 205's were in one; Lapua Small Pistol were used in one. None of the loads used W296 though. Have you looked at the Hodgdon's Reloading Data Center on-line? I haven't looked at it but I have heard Lyman Manual #49 has a lot of updated information on new cartridges.

    hodgdons online lists lots of loads including loads with 296 powder. but i didnt see primers listed for any of their load data. i can be blind as a bat sometimes but i dont think i missed it.

    finally found a listing with primers, i am going to use the hornady xtp 100 grn, 13 grns of 296, and a cci 550 primer. should give just about 1500 fps.
