I'm getting some Berger 70gr VLDs. Since I had good performance from 69gr Sierra MatchKings, I thought I'd try a bullet that might work well outside of 300 yards.

Wow, my gun didn't like the VLDs. Hard to call anything I shot a group. Tried some 77 SierraMK but they shot about 2MOA. They are getting too long for a 1:9 twist. Started reloading 69 SMK but got no where near the accuracy that I did with the factory load from Fiocchi. So I bought some more!

Looks like you let one slip out! You could have used a dime and it would of still looked great!

I'd post a picture of my last 5-shot group with Fiocchi but they weren't handloads.

That is one helluva nice group Joe.

Place the rifle on the bench and step away from it...more importantly...DON"T ALTER THAT LOAD...its a definite keeper mate.

By the way...how big is that coin?

Cheers, Vince

Joe, have you recorded a velocity for that load? What was your barrel length again?

I don't no the velocity the barrel is 20" . max load per there web site is 26 grains so i'm slightly over but have no signs of pressure.

If you want an accurate load for poking paper with a short 1:9 try 26.5 gr W748 and a 52 BTHP match bullet by Sierra or Hornady. It will not set any lad speed records but it will shoot under MOA in any AR I have shot it in.

Ok, had to post the group my AR is shooting. Granted its with factory ammo but surprizing for an M4 configuration. I gave up trying to match it with reloads and just bought some more Fiocchi.

Thanks! It would have been more satisfying if I achieved this accuracy with my reloads. But, I'll take what I can get!
