    Anyone loading for one of these? I just picked up a new Socom II cheap so I guess I better get started on a load that will hopefully also work in an HK91. I'm doing 175 SMKs for my bolt gun but this one is going to be iron sights at 100- 200 yards so I can get away with a cheaper and lighter bullet.

    Anyone find a bullet that works in yours?

    I'm using 150 grain Remington Corelokts, work good for me.

    I've used Hornady 150 grain FMJ or spire point bullets for mine. They are fairly cheap and accurate.

    Thanks all. I haven't bought factory ammo in years but if the price is right I'll check it out. In the meantime, I'll grab some 150s and start working up some loads.
