Re: Sighting a scope in for subs and supers?

I use an ATN X-Sight II 3-14, two profiles set up. One for supers with 100yrd zero and one for subs with a 50 yrd zero. Any need for ranging I use the optics ballistic program for range and environment adjustments. 200yrd gong hits with subs are just a touch of a button....... Ppffff....gong...... r...

Re: Changing col increments

At what increments should I start lengthening my cartridge by to see a difference? . Sorry man no one can answer that question. Simply said it dosent Work like that across the board for anyone to answer definitively. As soon as some one would tell you “@ .005 off rifling you will see accuracy tight...

Re: Hornady 190 gr Sub-X load data

Average fps: 1181 ES : 37 SD : 12.5 100 yard groups ran around 3/4" this load groups better at 37^F and lower It was 54 degrees so the velocity ran higher than before (avg. 1050fps). I ...

Re: Hornady 190 gr Sub-X load data

The 11.6grain N120 load shot good at 50 yards then at 100 yards it started to open up. I decided to test adding 1/10 grain more with N120, loads were 11.7, 11.8, 11.9 and 12grains. I kept the ogive to base measurement at 1.543" ( my compairator measures 0.999" so lets go with 1.00". Thats where the ...

Re: Hornady 190 gr Sub-X load data

Sunday afternoon at the bench finally produced a group that shows promise. I have kept using Remington 7-1/2 primers with all loads and switched to CCI 400 to see any change, yup velocities increased and vertical stringing with groups. Setteling on 11.6 grains of N120 printed a nice 1/2" group, this...

Re: Hornady 190 gr Sub-X load data

Getting close to a good load with N120. I will say this is a clean burning powder for subs, after 30 rounds I don't have unburnt powder all over the magazine. What I find most annoying is when a C.O.L. is listed with the sub-x bullet as tip to base is a subjective measurement, it's that soft tip ins...

Re: Hornady 190 gr Sub-X load data

While waiting for sub-x bullets to arrive I measured a factory case at 1.359" my converted brass is 1.3655". Seating the bullet to the sweet spot ogive for this barrel is 2.090" C.O.L. that sets the crimp groove at the top of the case neck. I will start with N120 and CFE Blk since I haven proven tar...
