Widener's has these on special, $63 for 500. Made by Privi Partizan. Should be good cannon fodder for the AR's and Sig556
Pup what kinda groups were you getting with the 25.5grns of BLC2 and the 69grns!?SkyPup said:I've been using 25.5 grains of Hodgdon BLC-2 for the Prvi and Nosler 69 grain BTHPs, seems to work real well.
You can definitely tell a difference between the 25.0 grains BLC-2 for the 75 grainers and the 25.5 grains BLC-2 for the 75 grains, distinctly more muzzle blast from the 75 grainers..
Both seem to shoot real well within 0.5 inch of each other at 100 yards.
That's ALL I need! I'll be ordering the 69ers from wideners and some BLC and load them up!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks again Guy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Reason I asked about the 69grn PRVI's is they(factory) shot better I'm sure I could get the 75's to shoot just want to start with what shot good as per factory stuff, 5 shoot group at 100yrds below with my girl!!!!!SkyPup said:Here is one of my 100 yards targets, no bipod, no rest, just laying prone with a 4X scope...
GREAT group Guy! Which bullets you shot this group with, and what load did you use with the 70grn Barnes TSX's?SkyPup said:Very nice rifle and target!
Here is another ten rounds at 100 yards with no support...
The target did not suffer a slow agonizing demise during this test, it died instantly!!! :mrgreen:
AWESOME!!!!! As per the Barnes did you get groups as such above?SkyPup said:Those were the 75 grain Prvi bullets in front of 25.0 grains of BLC-2.
I used 25.0 grains of BLC-2 behind the Barnes 70 grain solid copper TSX bullets too, no signs of any pressure at all. Will work up this load to 25.5 grains of BLC-2, the Barnes TSX apparently has less surface area against the rifling in the bore due to the deep lands cut into the bullet shank and therefore can take a little more powder.
The Barnes 70 grain TSX is just so damn long, I don't want to compress the powder while seating this huge bullet down.
