    I keep Federal Fusion 62gr. in our M4's incase something go's bump in the night....or the day. I've thought about trying them in our deer rifles. Heard good things about them.

    Thanks Pappabear.

    I too have a 700 5R 223 with 1 in 9. I actually set my 308 up just like my 223. It's also a good shooter. The heaviest I've tried in my 5R so far were Winchester Match 69gr. BTHP and Federal Gold Metal 69gr. BTHP. The Federal's shoot a little better so I just stuck with them.

    I shot some Hornday Match 75 gr. BTHP's in my 5R 223 this past weekend. They actually shot pretty good.

    We shot some smoking hot 80s a few weeks back. I meant to post the velocities because they were ridiculous. Ended up clogging the firing pin with blown primer frags. (we're dumb asses)

    I shoot the 208gr Amax in 1/12 308 barrels.

    100 yards, 10 shots. Around .65" center-to-center.








    1120 yards. Needed a couple windage adjustments to get on steel. The square in the middle is 5x5 inches.

    MM, Still slinging the heavies I see! Great work on the topic and stretching the old workhorse out. Are you still shooting the 06 as well?

    Mark, yes still shooting the 30-06 too.

    Some of the newer stuff looks fantastic, but I just don't have the desire to re-tool every time something new comes along.
