HV, FN and SP Bullets Reloading Data and Guidelines

GUIDELINES

The unique construction of HV, FN and SP Bullets allows the reloader to achieve higher speeds with a given weight of bullet than what was previously possible. Terminal ballistics of HV and FN bullets improve with additional speed. The exception would be if you require only standard speeds and want to reduce recoil. HV, FN and SP bullets work at lower pressure levels and therefore reduce recoil at standard speeds. Internal ballistics are superior with HV, FN and SP bullets in all cases. Use our HP Bullet range at normal speeds if you do not want the advantages that HV technology makes available to you. Follow the guidelines below for optimal performance with HV, FN and SP bullets.

Use an HV, FN and SP bullet that is recommended for the calibre. The correct length of bullet for the rate of twist and case capacity of the cartridge is more important than the weight.

HV, FN and SP bullets do not raise pressure levels like jacketed lead and standard and grooved monometal bullets do, when seated against the rifling.

Develop the speed of your load first. Once the desired speed is achieved, then tune the accuracy of the grouping by experimenting with overall cartridge length. Trying to do both at the same time will require more bullets than separating the two elements. See the load data page for detail.

For more general information see the
"FAQ"   section of the website as well as "The New Rules"

Warning!!

Do not use HV, FN and SP bullets load data for any other type of bullet, our HP range included. Dangerous pressures may be generated, leading to damage to the firearm and injury. See the HP Load Data for HP loads and consult the load guides of other manufacturers for data concerning their products.
