Lol...I got the magic touch. Get your Lapua to .50 cal performance and don’t even get me started on your 6.5CM. I post all my load data on FB. :D
Should have seen the responses I got posting a pic of my blackout load.

Hahaha Jesus. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere near an AR that’s shooting that.

I would have captioned the picture...

“The **** bullets are too long to seat properly!”

Re-read my post, kind if came across a little backwards. That's an actual load for my blackout with a 150gr gold dot. I was saying after that, I wonder what these 250's would do in a blackout.

Serious question. How do you seat the bullet? Is it a crimp? Powder get packed down a little?

Yeah super easy. I pull the bullets and add little cuts of C4. Boom...creedmoor performance.
O boy!! That almost sounds like something I did when I was 11 Years old. Never did it again either!

Send me some samples to see if it works in my gun. man just think of the look on a gophers face when I hit him at a mile!

6.5-300 with a 153 A-tip and (claimed) BC of .704? Yes please.
I feel ya with those high velocities and high BC. Just not sure how well they will do waaay out there with some wind. I kinda have a 800-1000 yard cutoff for the 6.5s when the wind gets goofy. I step into the .284 caliber heavier bullets. Then again behind that 1200-1400 range jump into the 338 heavies. Love killing them ground hogs on calm mornings waaay out there well past 1000 but once the wind comes out, so does the 284. It just gets it done better in wind.

Does anyone have the bearing surface length for the 230 a tips? I'm excited about these for my norma improved.
