    I have a DPMS with 1-9 twist and am looking for some load data for heavier bullets or a place to start. Thanks

    I had good accuracy in my Savage 110FP using the 69gn Nosler Competition and 25.0gn of H4895 and rem 6.5 primer. Never did chrono but accuracy was .303"
    I did however, chrono the 69gm SMK with these same components and accuracy was a bit tighter at .212" and velocity was 3004fps.
    I also got superb accuracy (.136") with the 55gn Ballistic Tip and 26.5gn of W748 n& 6.5 primer. JohnnyK.
