I have tried the 55g fmj's and got groups right around 1" for 5 shots with an A2 bushmaster non free floating barrel (scoped) using ww 748. They are fine bullets I just wish they would get 308 stocked up! 100yd for the tests

I just loaded up the last of my 62gr that I bought when I first started reloading. They're not that cheap though, factor in shipping and sales tax and they don't look so good. I always order out of state and get 5-6k now and they truly come out to be 7 cents a piece.

Golden West Brass is good to go! Their bullet actually weigh as stated, not like X-Treme where there is a .3 gr difference, GWB is compariable to Berry's bullets.

My Pet 308 Semi Auto load is GWB (150gr FMJ) and 42gr of Varget, this yeild sub-MOA in bud's Whitfeather and a around 1.5" in my M1 308 Garand. Unfortunately, thye are out of stock and I'm running low...

For the 223 55fmj, 25.3gr of H335 will yeild sub .6 in most 1:9 ARs, and 1.5" in 1:7

I know this is old, but just wanted to inform you guys that if you go pick it up, they don't charge tax.
