    My guess is that they’ll fly as well as the 69s. I bought 500 of them to try out.

    We will jug these bullets to get some idea how they perform. I am pumped they started making some heavies. I am a big fan of RMR, good stuff.

    I happen to have a bunch of primed Norma brass that will be perfect for testing these bullets. We should be running them next weekend.

    As much as you guys talk about how great these RMR bullets are it makes me want to sell my stock pile of Matchking 77's and Hornady 75's. Got roughly 3000 75's and 2000 77's yet plus a boat load of 55's and get some of these 69's or the 75's.

    Nobody's Beta tested these out yet, outside of RMR. So don't be throwing your 77's & 75's over the gunnel's quite yet. Let it payout a bit.

    Currently Hornady 75's with cannelure are selling for around $.20 cents a pop
    Sierra's w/cannelure for around $.39 cents each and around $.30 wo/cannelure
    RMR's all cannelure free sell from around $.15 to $.16 cents each, depending on whether your buying for your self only or outfitting the mongolian horde.

    Local store had 500 packs of 77 Sierra for $100. I bought 7K of them. Still had about 15 boxes left. Otherwise I would have got some of these to test. I am set for awhile.

    I haven't even loaded 77s in quite some time. No real need. I was messing with those 85 gr match burners, but I got tired of them. Full price bullet that wasn't that exciting. I load about 100 69s every week for that weekend's shoot.

    Yeah. Never sell bullets.

    I may shoot these head to head against Hornady 75gr Match bullets. I have plenty of same flavor brass, so if they arrive this week we'll try them out.

    The bullets have landed. We've shot a few thousand of the 69s. I'm not sure these could shoot any better, but they might have a further reach.

    The 69s track great with the ACOG on a 14.5 until you hit 600 yards... at that range you have to favor low.. at the base of the target to hit center. (a high class problem)
