I tried the 180gr Hornady Interlocks with 100grs of Retumbo at 3.60 and they shot .23 at 50yds, I could'nt believe it. The 165's the same old thing, 1.3moa. I believe I will stick with these for now and maybe go up or down a little on powder to see if it tightens up any. I'm a happy camper, 100.5grs is max load and shows a listed velocity of around 3300, of course I'm going to chronograph it to really know. If this gun will maintain anything around .5 moa with a full power load I'll take it.


The scope is gone also.

I have to be careful with my AR, it has a tight chamber and likes to snatch bullets if their not exactly right. I have thought about small base dies, but have yet to get them. The regular dies seem to need a little more shoulder setback for my gun/chamber. I get one load off new brass and the dies resize to spec, but they all stick in the chamber, it won't shoot wolf ammo either, it sticks.
