    Range report. 4-3-10
    [​IMG]
    I went out and did some accuracy testing today. I found that H335 and N135 are much more accurate in my Noveske than Ramshot TAC.

    Looks like I will be using either N135 or H335 at the larue match. I really wanted to use the TAC because its about 200 fps faster but the groups are not nearly as good.

    N135 77 SMK

    1. .67

    Well went shooting today at the 400 yard range. Did some chrono work as well. This group was at 200 yards when I was zeroing my rifle with Sierra's 77 grain SMK with 21.6 grains of N135 using a Federal Match Primer.

    The good news was I got my hold overs set out to 400 yards now. I also confirmed that the TA33 R9 ACOG on my Colt works great with my 77 grain reloads. I hit the gong at 400 yards again and again with ease.
