    Just curious
    Iím not single loading

    Mag length is 2.30Ē...224 Valkyrie uses 6.8 mags, not 223




    On a positive note, A new 600 yard range opened up pretty close to where my current range membership is held. Itís a MUCH nicer range...the long distance lane is about 100yds WIDE. Itís got numerous 25yd pistol/rifle bays and a 360* bay. There are some real quality instructors on staff as well.

    And Iím heading out there today :)

    Gorgeous day

    Got my 80gr ELD and 80gr SMK loads with H4895 squared away. I also shot a box of Federal GMM 90gr SMK (not Fusion) to see how it did. Shot roughly MOA at 100 then I smacked steel at 500yds with it just to hear the heavy slap sound it makes.

    I used Hornadys free Ballistic app and it got me close with the SMKs and inputted info but with the ELDs, it had much closer info and was dead on for me.

    My 80gr ELD load is moving right around 2965fps. The 90gr SMKs are just shy of 2700fps.

    Rainier’s 1:7.5 twist has NO problem with heavier bullets. I’ve shot 80gr and 88gr ELDs and now 90gr SMKs, both factory ammo and handloads with zero issues

    There was a node between 23.0-23.3gr, but .2 did the best.

    I dropped the OAL from 2.30” to 2.290”. I might even drop it to 2.28” but it’s hard to mess with a good thing. I’ve only got 3lbs of 4895....need to fix that
