Re: Best 1in 8" twist bullet weight for 200m accuracy

155 grains is the dividing line for me. under I use 296/H110, over its Shooters world Blackout or 1680. I have always had better accuracy with the heavier bullets with the different powder. I have tried some 168's and they are fine, just not a favorite. That's just the input I was looking for, than...

Re: Best 1in 8" twist bullet weight for 200m accuracy

Thanks
