I'm trying to help a friend in Colombia, where components are hard-to-impossible to obtain. He has a supply of PCL 516 and wants to use it for loads for his 7x57 using Federal cases, CCI large rifle primers and Nosler Partition 140 and 160 grain bullets. Does anyone have data for this combination with PCL 516?

When we can help him, are we invited for a hunt? Or is he going to send over some coffee? Smile

Alltough my favourit for the 7 mm Mauser is PCl517, which is much slower than PCL516, my loading tabel gives also some loads for PCL 516:
(barrel length 610 mm)

139 grs SP, RWS case, CCI LR Mag Primer, 48.0 grs PCL 516 - V 2.5 m = 864 m/s

150 grs FMJ, RWS Case, CCI LR Mag primer, 46.5 grs PCl 516 - V2.5m = 849 m/s

these data are maximums, you should start about 6 to 10 % lower!

PCl or Poudres Clermont was produced by PRB in Belgium and is still distributed in Belgium by A.J.C. Service. I know somewhere on the net you can find loading data, I'll look for the site lather.
If it can help you: in the discription of this powder in the reloading manual it's told that PCL516 is very close to H380 (and you all know Hodgdon)


Et voilà, I hope this can help you:

Many thanks. My friend is a fine gentleman and a great hunter -- he'll be happy to invite you to hunt. Coffee is hard to ship. The narcs think it's packed with coke. I'll pass along this information and any more that comes along.
