Ron I'm shooting 25.3gr of Varget in a BVSS with the bullets jammed .010. Fed primers and win brass. I'm using Wilson dies and so far they shoot " if I do my part.

Re: Anyone handloading the Sierra 69gr. HPBT Match?

Been playing with these guys in my AR for a while now. I feel the same as you I guess. Some days I feel like I'm getting the results I want with all rounds touching on paper and measuring less than .5" groups and other days I get flyers and get disappointed with my pet. But I use the 69gn BTHP seated at 2.269, cause the mags absolutely won't allow any longer seating depth, 24.8 gn of 748 and CCI BR4 primers. Guns a bushmaster varmiter with a 24" bull barrel at 1-9 twist. It's on the slower end and I kinda think. Never actually run them through a chrono but I'm thinking just under 3000/fps. That seems to be the ticket. I'd really like to make a faster round but with all of my trips to the range it seems that I get lots more flyers and lots of spread out groups if I do. I shoot off of a bi-pod and bags from a table typically but borrow a buddy's lead sled now and again too.

If anyone has ideas that could tighten up my groups I'm always up for trying something new....

I tried them in my AR and could not get the results I wanted. Did some load testing for a week and quit. After 3 loading my brass was beat all to pieces. Well compared to bolt brass which is what I'm used to.

Looks like the scope was the issue, hopefully the Varget will work now. Seems to do well 24.5-25.5 depending on the gun. 25.5 is on the warm side.
