    Nosler's 77 CC is what I have used to get new shooters onto 700-yard steel for their first time. It's a smile-maker for sure. And when you can get them as low as .14/piece in bulk on sale, really hard to beat!

    Ok, got a chance to load a few function test rounds. 22.5 grains of tac.
    11.5” RGP barrel with Turbo.
    Locks back every time. Next I’ll get up to the range to check accuracy.
    Any pressure concerns?

    No pressure signs there. But a chrono is the better gauge. TAC is a little slow burning for an SBR load. It'll work, but I like a faster powder. Especially if I'm running a can.

    Good to know. I have 9 pounds to burn up.
    What do you recommend?

    I think Mark likes H322 and XBR for our loads. He may have a pet load for SBR's that I dont know. If you have TAC, you gotta use it for something as long as its accurate enough.

    TAC is great powder, but like PB said, I like the benchrest extruded powders. LT-32, XBR, and H322. Meter good, and shoot great.

    Nosler’s own surplus shop (Shooter’s Pro Shop) will have overruns and blems on rotation. I picked up my last 1k of the 77s from them. The deals come and go.

    Thanks for the feedback. I have a few pounds of 322 I can fool around with.
    The only loads I have in my manuals is Sierras at 20.6 grains to start up to 21.8 grains max.
    What is your pet load?
    This is such good feedback because there is such limited information for suppressed SBR load data!

    We run 21.6-21.8 for the "house" load. Outstanding in any AR and a great long range round out to 1000 yards in the bolt gun.

    I've been going over max at 22.8 with some 77 gr TMKs recently that give a more 5.56ish pressure and performance.
