Thanks for the great, detailed post. These rifles are certainly a humbling learning and growing experience, and we grow as shooters with the rifles as they evolve with our chosen improvements. While we're off solving the complexities, however, the obvious is easy to overlook. These rifles bring you back to basics, and are a whole different kettle of fish from our routine AR, handgun and bolt gun proficiencies and routines.
My own Socom, by the way, LOVES the Hornady 168 grain BTHP, as does my Nat Match, and it is a top-three favorite of my Scout Squad, as well. It's become my go-to round, in a factory load.
