Re: Load testing my Rem Tactical in .223

i got a sps tactical last week in 223
have only been looking for pressure signs with varget and 75gr amax so far while giving the barrell a light breakin.
26 grns gave me 2840 fps and that was a compressed load.
i have 3 cases of 25.5 and 3 of 26 to test grouping when the rain stops

So far I like my SPS Tactical. For a factory rifle it shoots pretty well. I have one in .308 but my son shoots it more than I do and I haven't had the time to work with it. My Sendero (7mm mag) and .338 Edge keep are enough... not to mention pistols and real life...

I'm going to have to try Varget... I'm starting to look like a powder addict though I've got a good selection and I guess you can't ever have too much...
