    It's only 1 picture, and I can still see it on my end...Try refreshing your page or something? I know Photobucket has been acting up lately, that could be the issue?

    Mudrunner are you haveing to play with seating depth on the 210s I tried the 168 hybrids and had to load @ 2.90 to get them to group in my Surgeon Scapel.

    The 210's are a "press-fit" depth, if you catch my drift. LOL They're sitting up against the lands and I have to put some pressure to lock the bolt handle down. But they are stacking quite nicely with 39.1gr of Varget.

    I did that exact comparison except with 168gr SMKs. The best load that I came up with is 41.1grain Alliant AR-Comp with Fed 210M primers and lapua brass. 0.080" to 0.012" off the lands. The results were
    MAX FPS=2710.
    MIN=2688.
    AVE 2698 FPS.
    ES 22FPS.
    STDEV 7FPS.
    2 10shot groups were .5" or so at 100yds

    Fed Prem Gold 168 SMK
    MAX 2677 FPS
    MIN 2621 FPS
    AVE 2651 FPS
    ES 56 FPS
    STDEV 16 FPS
    2 10shot groups were 0.6" or so at 100yds

    Cost is $.60 assuming I can reload lapua 10 times and $1.65 for factory Feds assuming you can find any.

    So basically no difference between the 2 as far as grouping with my load doing better as far as speed. But I'm not popping the champagne just yet. Next I'm going to try 3 10 shot groups at 200yds where I'm pretty sure there will be a bigger difference. After that the same tests on 175 SMKs.

    I have replicated Federal 175 Match using 43.1gr Reloader 15 , Federal or Win brass, fed 210 M or Win LR primers. Loaded COAL 2.810". My old Sierra Reloading manual states that this load duplicates the match load. Its right on the nose .My velocity is the same at 2575FPS. My reloads have an SD of 7 vs factory of 15. Both produce .25-.5 MOA at 300 yards. Same scope settings. My rifle is a Rem700 Milspec 5R.
