What is the heaviest grain weight that you guys have been putting through? When I had a 14.5" Bushy anything over 55gr would fly off the paper.

My chrome-lined 11.5" 1in9 will shoot 75gr OTM all day long quite accurately, although I normal have 68gr OTM for SHTF as 50yd zero is practically the same as M193 (75gr hits 1-2" high on my setup zeroed for 193).

Huh.

I have a 20" Bushy that loves 69 grain Matchkings--1.5" 5-shot groups @ 200 yds.

I usually go with 55 grain in it, however.

Hmmm? Well, I guess I need to go back at again. I sold mine years ago since I was limited on ammo. Now that I am adding a 233/556 upper I will need to try out some ammo.

My 16" carbine likes the 69gr Match Kings too ,but I pretty much stick with 55 gr for most everything.
