I have a 1 in 9 twist and it shoots best with 55gn Noslers . Work that out !
Bear in mind that you probably won't be able to use the magazine in a Remy with VLD bullets unless you get a very short throat .
The listed BC for the 90grn Scenar is .420, they are very nicely made and shoot superbly.
I have not tried the 105grn SMK yet but have had success with the 105grn Scenar which has a listed BC of .530,out of my 1-9 (and a bit) twist factory barrel.
In standard common calibres, Lapua brass and bullets are one of the things that are cheaper to buy here in Britain then the american equivalents.
I'm looking to forward to a progress report. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
Poor guy! It's just a shame you don't have the benifit of cheap REMINGTON brass and are stuck with LAUPA brass! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

3sixbits,Why is it so hard for rem.,win., etc. USA mfgs to produce quality brass?It's does'nt make sense !We will pay for it! ,be glad to have it usa, and ,and, and, sheesh,I just don't get it.The facilities are here and just for the record how /what percentage of shooters world wide are here vs. there/elsewhere?

Its a money issue my friend, while most everyone on this board will shell out the green for quality brass, the VAST majority of American shooters and hunters could care less about brass quality of even load consistancy. Just look at how much factory ammo is sold every year and if oyu go hang out in your local gun shop for a period of time, you will see it is not the quality premium factory ammo that is flying off the selves, its the cheap stuff.
Point being, US brass makers make a load of money with the product they offer, why cut into their profit margins for added quality when their support base does not demand it?
For most of us here, we will happily pay more for better brass or spend hours prepping and machining US brass to get true match grade performance.
