Not the fastest load around but plenty accurate and pleasant to shoot.

What length are you loading to?

Re: New Remington 300 BLK UMC Subsonic ammunition.

I dont care if the brass is shiny or not. Shiny stuff just messes with my ADD

The brass had dings and dents in the sidewalls. Nothing that will effect chambering but it looks beat up
Kinda like Holyfield after the Tyson fight :cry:

Re: 90 gr Hornady XTP Load Data

Ok.... Im confused

Why load a ultra light bullet at subsonic velocity? If i can run any bullet weight i want but the vel threshold is around 1000fps. Whats the benefit of a 90gn pill over a 220?

Serious question. Just trying to learn as much as i can

Re: 208 A-max vs 220g anything

I dont think the can will change velocity much if any. Maybe 20 fps.

I guess that might matter if your load was right on the edge, but you'll get much less noise if you stay well below the SOS.

I like to run my subs between 975-1000 :mrgreen:
