Less than 200. This is the first time I’ve got a rifle that is far better than I am.
I loaded the next batch of Sierra 175 MK to tighter in loading constraints. I weighed each bullet and only loaded bullets of the same weight in each of the 5 shot strings. It seems that Sierra has a tolerance of 175 +- .2 Gr. The surprise was they were loaded to “stock length” of 2.8.
I have three strings to test, one plain, and two treated with Tubbs Boron Nitrite coating. I’ll chrono each string and see what I get.
The Barnes Match Burners were also a pleasant surprise; I have about 1000 of these that I bought during the worst of the Obama induced reloading supply shortages. They never flew well out of my M1A, so I’m glad I have a platform where I think I can get some millage out of them.
We’ll see how the next batch fly’s Saturday.
