The load for my Dasher like 33.2gr of RL15,Berger 105 Molly bullets with 450cci primers 10th into lands. At the last 600yard match I won 5frist, 2 seconds. The saying is the gun shoots that way every time but the driver show up sometimes. Remember always start with less powder and slowly work up, all guns are different. BE safe.

Been a little rushed getting rifle ready for 500m Fly comp this weekend. New rifle... load development was 14 rounds.
Weather was horrible... very windy. Only shot at 100m.
Ladder test 32.2-33.4 grains of RE-15. No pressue issues through the range. 33.4, primer still rounded like first seated.
I do not recommend going up into the 33+ grains of RE-15 if just starting out. My two dasher previously maxed out way before here, one at 32.8 the other 32.6.
Primer- CCI 450
Projectile- Australian Made 103VLD. The same as or very close to the Spencer. Moly'd
Seating depth 20thou in. used slip case to get soft seat.. very soft. Could push projectile in by hand, but it gives me the very minimal length to lands.
Chrony.. not enough time before comp... will post after when I get a chance.
Load looks like 33grains flat... very generic....
With bugger all pressure sign.... none... I may be down on velocity.... time will tell.
Rifle 0.272" no turn, Lilja 3 groove 1:8, Jewell, March 10-60, Jewell, Kelbly Klub. Picture above.
5 shot at 33grains resulted in overall group of 0.45"ish... three shot into low 1's. No flags... lots of wind.
