I've had great results with 50-55gr bullets with 25gr to 26gr of TAC.
Seated to standard oal.

Re: Loads for Bushmaster Predator Upper

My predator only cycles 69's.
My load is with varget.
Every factory load in the 52 to 55 grain range would run a few then not feed.and or jam.
Once I worked up a load with the 69s and varget I have had zero feeding problems.
Shoots very good too.
Have not tried running 60's yet.
