Encore 270
Bullet 140 gr Accubond Coated
Coating Tungsten Disulfide (WS2) Dry Lubricant Powders
Powder IMR 4350
50 gr, 51 gr, 52 gr, 52.3 gr, 52.7 gr, 53 gr and shot in that order
Temp 46 deg. Wind 0 to 5 mph
Dist. 100 yds
Best group is #2 at 0.549
Worst group is obvious, all but the first two.
Point of interest: On a naked bullet the POI would be at the POA. The coated bullets are flatter as it was explained to me by Mike.
Also on a naked bullet the 52.7 gave me the better group
Only shot groups of 3 since I was running out of time and did not want to hurry all my shots.

Mistake: group 4 is actually 3 Sorry

Mistake: group 6 is actually 5 Sorry

If you chronographed those loads you'd find that they're quite a bit slower than the naked bullets accounting for the position on target. Usually coated bullets require quite a bit heavier charge to get to the same velocities and pressure. With me I've tried both but the jury is still out. Currently I'm running around naked. Now there's a scary picture for you.

LOL Whelen I do not want to get anything started about you getting, oh being naked. I wonder if we could chronograph you run naked or with clothes on.

Experiments like that could cause blindness. We had better stick with bullets.
