How they performed on game, the accuracy of the bullet and loading data that produced good accuracy.

    Now this is the sweetest little load I have. The Speer TNT loaded in SSA brass with a Cartridge Over All Length of 2.295 inches, 29.5 grains of Alliant RL-7 powder and a Remington 7 1/2 Bench Rest primer, I get about .5 inch groups at 100 yards.

    I've shot hundreds of prairie dogs out to over 300 yards with this load. This is a real winner of a load!

    I make my first mistake everyday just by getting out of bed. After that, the mistakes start to cascade, erupting in a full fledge series of failures by the time I get to lunch. At dinner time, my catastrophes become radioactive and I have to shut down for the rest of the evening to avoid a complete melt down. If it weren’t for my sweet and loving wife, half the world would be missing by bedtime.

    Very accurate bullet. I found that it likes the extruded powders best. 28.6 GR of H4198 was my favorite and fastest load. RE7 and H322 were also very accurate.

    Very accurate.
    29.2-29.5gr of RE7 loaded out to 2.3" seems to be a very accurate load in many rifles.
    Fastest load ever in our 5R barrels 32.5gr of 10x produced 3158fps-
    As always start low and work up loads slowly.

    With 31.0gr of H322 loaded to 2.300 I get .46 MOA at 2800 fps. Very accurate and has performed well on 2 does at approx. 100yds and has taken a hog from about 80. All 3 animals traveled less than 20yds.
    With RE7 29.0gr I get 2720fps and .25 MOA
    Here is the group with 31gr of H322:

    29.5 grs rx7
    Remington or Hornady brass.
    Cci 34 or 41 respectively.
    2.280" oal.

    3/4 moa from remington or 1/2 moa from hornady. A good solid all around bullet. Tough enough for light big game. Cheap enough to shoot all the time accurate enough for most any job. If you need to find out if your upper is accurate you need to try this one. It shoots well from any gun I've tried it in.

    Here's one of my best groups so far, this was with factory SSA ammo, standard loading with a Vortex Crossfire @ 100 yards from a 20" Bison barrel.

    I run 29.5 of RE7 with SSA or Hornady brass, pick a primer and shoot it, I shoot these the most and routinely shoot small clays (I think they are 2 inches across) all day long with that load.

    Like others have said this is one of the most consistently accurate 6.8 bullets available. It shoots sub MOA in all three of the 6.8's for which I reload.
