    I think I left of at 23.2 or so. The CCI primers are giving me horrible SDs, and I even had one failure to ignite last Sunday. I need to get pics of it.

    I'm running the CCI 450 which has a thicker cup and lights off the ball powders with ease.

    The primers I'm running are CCI 41s. (exact same as 450s) When I say it failed to ignite, I mean the primer didn't ignite, not the output charge. Decent pin strike on it. I'll try to get pics.

    I just received this from an RMR email

    69 Grain .224 2nds
    500 - $75.00 (15 per bullet)
    1,000 - $130.00 (13 per bullet)
    2,000 - $255.00 (12.75 per bullet)

    The 2nds shoot about the same as the good ones for me.

    I've been getting the Midwayusa SMK 77 blems for 17-18 cents. Worth the price spread. I do like the 69s. And I'd buy the seconds in a heartbeat if the 77 blems weren't an option.

    The 77 blems shoot really well for me, typical groups are half the size of the 69 RMR, and do better in the wind.

    69s for steel inside 600, 77s for beyond that.

    This is where Im at. The 69s will hit kyl large and medium plates, but head hunters and that last bit, they tend to not quite be able to get consistent hits.

    Last two weeks I've been seeing a lot of horizontal stringing with the RMRs. I'm halfway ok with their so-so accuracy because if they were really accurate, I'd be a tight ass about slinging them.

    RMR 69 gr OTMs

    I received my order of 500 RMR 75 gr and plan to load some next week.

    I went and bought an 8 pound jug of N140 today. $265 + tax made it around $280 out the door. The 8 pound jug or Varget was $362! Wow! When I commented on it at the counter, the guy said he expected the VV to go up in the near future.

    If you are anywhere in the Marion TX area, Bexar Community Range is a hidden gem of powder.

    I really like N140. Hopefully Vihtavouri doesn't get greedy like Alliant and Hodgdon have.
