    After dinking around with the RMR 75 gr bullets, CFE223 was decent but today’s loads with XBR over S&B primers turned up a .77” five round group at 100 with two flyers out of a three round one holer. I think the flyers were all me. Now that I’ve gotten there I’ll load up a batch and plan a day at the longest range available to me.

    RMR’s email of today with the cutaway of the 75gr bullet makes me want to set up some water jugs and have at it…

    Here it is from RMR’s email of 9/17/22 where he also quips that the CC companies should list his products as “Agricultural” since they mostly get planted in the ground

    We spun up a load that seems to be a winner. 22.2 gr of H322 & Wolf SRMs Shooting inch or better at 2750 fps from the 20" bolt gun. And the SD was 6 on a 5 round string. I'm going to run with that for now until XBR is available again.

    My chrono says launch velocity was just over 2600fps. Gallon water jugs set at 50 yards. The bullet fragments made it into the third jug and some part cracked the back of that jug. I’m not thinking these are for hunting anything you might eat…

    I apologize for the crappy iphone pix. The fragments were lost before I got home.

    Thats some pretty mean fragmentation, how much frag was in the first jug?

    Definitely doesnt look like the PPU 75gr where the rear core almost looks like an expanded bullet.

    There was no inside for the first jug as it was pretty wrecked, what remained of the jacket was in the second along with the smaller lead fragments, the largest lead chunk was in the third.

    Cool frag pics. I've been saving up jugs to do one too.
