Re: Speer Gold Dot 150 BLK

I took a really nice 6 pointer, with a 22" spread, and no brow tines this past weekend with the Gold Dot over 22.0 g of 1680, and a COAL of 2.195, with a average MV of 2035 FPS, ES of 39, and SD of 13. Very minor pressure signs were observed ….. Slightly flattened primer. Group size was within 1/2" ...

Re: Speer Hot Core 130 Gr

I'm pretty sure the expansion velocity is too high to be effective for a hunting round, but one of my subsonic plinking and squirrel rounds uses this projectile at 890 fps, over 5.7gn of trail boss, with an oal of 2.0". Very accurate out to 60 yards or so. This round was developed for my RAR.

Re: Have they fixed Ruger American Ranch Rifle's feeding problem???

I purchased a RAR about 3 or 4 years ago, before the AR mag model came out, and musta got a good one ….. I have about 1000 rounds through it, using 2 different factory mags, with very few malfs. All factory loads I've tried have fed very reliably. The only feeding problems I have had were with extre...

Re: Max Effective Range of Common 300 BLK Projectiles

Thank you Dr.Phil for this info, and updates. Been a couple of years since I've done any reloading for the BO, or any reloading for that matter. Just got the set up at the new house, and have been working on a subsonic 130gn Speer Hot Core load with good success. I plan to work up a new hunting rou...

Re: Mid America Munitons. Ozark Ordnance under a new name?

I ordered 250, 208 A-Max subs back at the end of March ….. I got 250 boxed, A-max, but out of the 50 I shot over a couple day period, very few were subsonic. NOTE : I did not chrono any of them, but the supersonic "crack" was very apparent. They all seemed a little hot. This is not my first rodeo, i...
