i had a load worked up with 168 gr banes tsx's, but i wanted to try a different bullets.
so i bought a box of 180 gr sst's.
i had been shooting 99 gr's reldr 25 for right at 3400 fps with the barnes's, so i backed off 2 grains, and fired this group.
velocity was good, no signs of pressure, so up we go with the powder charge.
97 gr's of reldr 25 average 3234 fps with the sst's.
now if i can get the pic to load...
the first 2 shots were way off from my sight in with the tsx's, but they hit at 3 o'clock from center. nice so far..
so i cleaned the barrel again, since i am still breaking it in, and fired again, wow... way low and right...
didn't clean , and fired 2 for a total of 3...
the next 2 hit about dead center..
2 - 2 shot groups in about a half inch, i think this combo has promise..
