I had my M96 out today Klaus, unfortunately these days I don't bother too much taking fotos though.
I was shooting at 100m using an unchecked NOE 270-149 cast bullet sized .267", powder charge was 7g Unique with sellier & bellot large rifle primer. Shooting from the rest I was getting some horizontal stringing but I was still pleased with the load.
The weather was a trifle cool and I was pleased to get in the car and get the heater on after a few hours at the range.
Thank you for posting up your results, very interesting as I haven't used those powders.

Hello Joe,

if you are load Unique is will be quite similar like Lovex D036
7 grs seems a bit less to me ( your results shows good results , no question)
I have load 6,7 grs Bullseye some times ago with good results too

next step is to load Lovex D37.2 = Accurate 9 with 14 - 16 grs

in the UK your are able to buy Lovex Stuff too or i am wrong ?

Here in Germany it a cheap stuff more than 10 Euros less than any other Powders for 454 grs / 500 gr. Bottles

I haven't come across Lovex powders in my area Klaus. I must admit I'm kinda stuck in my ways regarding the powders I use but that does seem like a good saving. I might have to seek some out, thanks for the tip.
My last tub of Unique cost me £39.50 for 454g / 1lb

I don't think Lovex powders are available in the UK. We tend to use Unique or 2400. Vitavouri powders are widely available. Bullseye is another popular one.
