Yes, they worked fine in my mags. I am using PRI 15 round mags.95g? Can you seat them to magazine length?
HMMMM, Interesting.i talked with paul at craddock precision and he said that while he did not see fantastic groups at 100 yards, he had a 4 inch group at 800 with a 1:7 twist on the 90gr projectiles. not sure how it wont group good at 100 but better at 800... however he was very confident in stating that. he does a whole lot more shooting than i do im sure. figured id pass that along to everyone. Maybe if you arent grouping fantastic at 100, reach out a little bit and see what happens.
Brain Dead! lolWhy are you quoting yourself?
All I can add is I still think the 90 SMK'S run better with a longer COAL.haven't shot any yet, but i have two lots, s33e043 and 041. 043 varies from 2.249 to 2.253. 041 from 2.241 to 2.247. so .012 spread between the two lots. big deal? zero issue? never measured factory ammo before so don't know if this is normal or acceptable, or a problem?
yea same here... and i live in the dfw area where it should easily be attainable. granted i havent gone out of my way to look for it at some of the local shops, but i still havent been able to find it at the main cabelas and bass pro shops i frequent.I cant find rl17 to save my life.
Those groups look good at distance!Load testing 95smk and RL15 at 100, 23.2 looks promising. My magnetospeed was attached for the first two groups but wasn't picking up velocity for some reason. Took it off for the rest groups got progressively larger to 24 grains which measured 1.1" ctc, 23.2 is right at .5" and if I had to guess 23.2 would be mid to low 2500's as yesterday 24.4 was clocking 2630.
Also attached is 90smk with 24.4gr RL15 at 500 (mis-marked 400) on fired starline brass and 600 on new starline, both are 7 shot groups.
It's nice to see that they don't really seem to mind a jump. Have you tried any other seating depths to see if they are jump tolerant or if this is just a sweet spot?.060"
i plan to test 60 and 90 factory ammo at 100yds in the morning along with my 90 and 77 hand loads.Curious if any of you guys have some 60gr factory ammo to measure coal. I’m testing some 52gr eldms and going off Sierras spec of 2.180. They’re sticking out quite a bit. I’m trying AA2520, Varget, and RL15 to see how fast I can get them.
