    Is the tip deforming? I had some seating rings on a recent load. At first I thought the problem was because I was using flat base buckets, but then I added a little extra chamfer to the brass and they seated beautifully.

    16" 6.8 SPC AR15Performance Scout barrel with factory 110 gr S&B FMJ.





    This picture/group is a few years old and I'm pretty sure I've done better with the Federal XM68GD 90gr Gold Dots and about the same with the 115gr Fusions. I haven't really worked up a hand load for my 6.8 and now have a 12.5" ARP that I probably only have ~100 rounds through so really haven't put it through it's paces yet. I just put a new Vortex Razor HD LH on my 16" 6.8 so hopefully I'll make some progress on 6.8 load development this year.

    I hold the ARP barrels to be one of the best values in the AR barrel world. It's also why I refuse to create an account an TOS as they'll ban you for even mentioning the name of the company because they value power trips and holding a grudge more than educating the community and the truth.

    Iím testing another LPVO, this time itís a 1-8 Strike Eagle. Played hooky from work since it was 80 degrees out

    I wanted to use the Strike Eagle and factory ammo (CBC/Magtech 77gr OTM) with my Ultramatch barrel to see what someone could do with off the shelf components. My groups opened up a tad at 200 and 300 but itís definitely capable of putting rounds where you want them.

    Show your 10 shot groups

    Using Former11Bís RL 10x formula with 55gr bobís bullets.

    20*. No wind. 7500í elev. Brand new ultramatch 20Ē barrel (thanks to Rainier coupon code). I hope it settles down. Or Iím growing worse as a shooter. :)

    Ahh...Brand new barrel and new load..

    Get some lead down that thing and tweak that recipe some and I’ll bet those groups shrink quite a bit

    That and when it warms up it could shoot somewhat different..

    Roger that. It hated the MEN M193 ammo I used which normally shoots well for me. Never thought when I started reloading that Iíd need a summer and winter load.

    I’m not the holy grail to listen to but some powders definitely show you different signs in different temps..more so if your loads are on the edge or over to the book..

    Took the new barrel out last night

    100 yards, 10 shots, 20" Rainier Arms Ultramatch Mod2 .223 Wylde, IMI 77gr. The grids are 1" x 1"



    I'll let you be the judge on if the flyer represents the barrel or the shooter.

    1.35 MOA is awesome for 55gr FMJs!

    Use the same amount of RE10x and some 52gr SMKs and the group will probably be less than half that size
