    Finding a load for my PWS MK111....

    ...is a lesson in patience. Im used to a Douglas barreled, monolithic SPR. A non free floated, short barreled, long stroke piston has to be the complete opposite, lol
    I was hoping itd like at least one of my previous loads, but 2 seems to be the norm so far. Oh well, theres more powders/weights to try..

    Those barrels take a little bit of breaking in... More so than most, in my experience. Once broken in, mine shoots better after it's collected a bit of copper.

    Yeah. We've recently experienced this with a Faxon barrel that Pappabear bought. It started out a 3 or 4 MOA barrel. It's down to just over MOA now.

    Sounds like I’ll just keep running some old loads through it before I try to find a new one. I’ll be happy with moa, mostly looking for something that both my AR’s will like. Kill two birds..

    We have good luck with 77 gr OTMs in many guns... almost regardless of load. If you're looking for a more economical route, the 62 gr Hornady HPBT has been very MOAish for us.

    HA! Scientific term.
    AQ planned for years and sent their A team to carry out the attacks, and on Flight 93 they were thwarted by a pick-up team made up of United Frequent Fliers. Many people look at 9/11 and wonder how we can stop an enemy like that. I look at FL93 and wonder, "How can we lose?". -- FromMyColdDeadHand

    Your H322 load shoots great in my SPR, and a 2520 load shoots ok. I’d definitely like to stick with 77’s for the added thump, plus Nosler 77’s are very economical.

    Yeah. That load has been good in lots of guns. It's hard to mess up a 77 gr OTM. But the faster Benchrest rooted powders really shoot accurately in a variety of guns.
