Been fooling around with these 155s the past couple of weeks - found two loads that grouped well at 100 and narrowed it down to one which is damn good. Have tried it on papers at 100, 150, 200 on steel at 400 and was well iimpressed . . . I had stuck my little plate up on the hill at 400 and was rewarded after 10 shots with a nice 4" shiny spot when I went back up to get it (wonder what that translates to on paper). Today I ran the new load through the chrono - whoa Avg of 2970 fps @ 10' - ES 13, SD 6.75. It could be my long love affair with the 175SMKs is drawing to a close though I love my old load dearly and know it like no other. Bad news is I'm down to the last 200 155s and no one seems to have them - - - my luck

Win case, WLR, 44.2 Re15, 155 Scenar.

I mentioned the 4" shiny spot because thats includng the paint chips - have no idea where inside that spot the acutally bullet strikes were, but I guess 1MOA including chips at 400 isn't bad :D Going to try them on the buff next Friday as I prep for the match. Can't wait to see what the dope is.

In my factory barrel I needed almost 46g to reach similar velocities. That rock is a screamer. I hope mine is as fast so I can save on powder :)
