Hornady 190 Grain Sub-X loads

Post by 76Raider »

I installed a 16" WILSON COMBAT barrel in 300 BLK on one of my DD M4V7 rifles. Further installed a SLR Rifleworks/Wilson Combat adjustable gas block. Loaded up some new Hornady brass with 190 grain Sub-X bullets in front of 12.0 grains CFE BLK (measured to the nearest thousandth of a grain) and went to the range. Ten shots yielded a mean muzzle velocity of 1068 fps with a SD of 11.1. I adjusted the gas block until the bolt locks and the accuracy is very good. Only problem is that the rounds don't feed reliably but I think that is just a problem with the Sub-X bullets (using a PMAG 300 BLK magazine). Gonna work up some loads with Sierra 220 grain HPBT and see how that works. Fun stuff!

try seating the bullets at different lengths. the 190 Sub x bullets function fine out of my rifles & pistol. I seat them on the cannelure but your weapon might like it somewhere else.

I had problems also with Pmags. A Lancer mag solved my problem.

I second both comments with the minor difference of Duramags. I'm having great luck with both supers and subs with duramags. My COL is 2.06 with 13gr. Keeps me 1050-1065fps out of a triarch 8.3" and maxim defense pdw brace.
