They're right at the edge of stability for a 1/9 depending on the barrel. My 1/9 seems to like the Hornady 68 just a little better than the Sierra 69. I thought about trying some 75gr. bullets but figured I would just be throwing my money away because they likely wouldn't stabilize. I just finished shooting the last of my police hand-me-down once fired brass in my rifle and reloaded fifty with only neck sizing yesterday and will see if the 68 Hornady groups improve. The Hornadys are just a little cheaper than the Sierras so that doesn't hurt either. I just tried to order some more of the Hornadys from Midway yesterday but they were out of stock so I guess I'll have to wait two or three weeks until they get more. I hate to tell you this 444 but just a couple of weeks ago I bought the last box of Sierra 69 Match Kings that Benton Shooters had. If you snooze you lose. LOL!

Might look into the bulk 55gr FMJ offering from Midway...you'll be happy I assure \:\) Might also look into bulk pull-down powders and primers by the 5000 lot...no kidding my AR's get more range time and end up hotter than any weapon I own ;\)

Im just gonna have to break down and order some 55+ bullets. The group I got at catchdawgs today was horrible. Maybe 2" at the best. This gun simply does not like 50gr NBT's any farther away than 50yd.
