    I did my first load development today. I did a velocity test and two other tests. I am using 112 grain Match Burners because that's all I got.

    With 29 grains of CFE 223 I got 2668 velocity. I backed off a lot and didn't get to max because that grain weight of bullet is not listed anywhere.

    On the very first 5 shot string I looked at the chronograph and my SD was 7. That's pretty good.

    I just seated the bullets to magazine length and went for it. I am far from being anywhere near completed, but with the factory ammo I was getting under an MOA with that, and with these first few shots I think it has potential. We will see how it turns out.

    Those bullets might work good and they might not. The overall shape of the bullet doesn't give much leeway on seating depth. This is literally the first day shooting those so we shall see.

    Berger 109s seem to be a favorite. Hopefully the 112s will work. Price is certainly good for that particular bullet.

    109s are definitely on my list. I have 300 of the Match Burners. I will be on the lookout for more options to test. I am open to anything 107 and up. If I can get good results from the 112s that will be awesome. They are cheap and have a high-ish BC.

    I'd think the Vapor Trail 103s might be worth a try.

    His approach in this video is much better than trying to drum up 'controversy' by making off the cuff statements. If he had started out this whole thing by just doing it then he would have never gotten nearly as much heat for his comments.

    I personally won't write off the idea of changing some chamber dimensions, not by a mile would I write that off as a distinct possibility (or even probability)...

    Any time you are working with what is essentially the first wave of anything, much less barrels or cartridges, you should expect that things will get tuned up over time.
