What do you use? why? accuracy, cheap, availability?

This season I will be using hornady v-max for coyotes and ssa TSX for deer/hogs.

Handloads, build the load to the rifle.

Art, I didn't know it would have this outcome. So will you start selling plinking ammo?

In the past I have predominantly used the Remington FMJ for plinking and SSA OTM for bench/accuracy. Now that SSA has discounted pricing direct, I will probably use their 115gr OTM for everything and buy deep to save. They are supposed to have another plinking load by years end that I will give a try.

Machines for the Plinking round are on their way. We hope before years end we will be up and running.

Glad to hear it, Art.

We still don't have a good "plinking" round that is cheap enough to buy in quantity, and non-handloaders need that badly. I reload but I just don't have enough "free-time" to do enough of it. So, I still have to buy factory ammo, since I shoot, much faster than I can reload it, in that precious free time.

Please also help us get the following:

High BC bullets designed for the 6.8 SPC. We need some in the .400 range and up to get the velocity up without the excess pressure. There are still alot of people who own 1 in 10" barrels out there, and I hear that LWRC decided to go with 1 in 10" also, so there are still Mfr's making that twist. Whether you believe that the land/groove ratio, chamber dimensions or depth or twist is the gig, we need to tweak the bullets now, too.

More soft-point or ballistic-tipped, high BC hunting rounds in the 115-130 grain range, short enough to build safe, compressed loads to spec OAL's for hunting. Constructor already loaded a 130 to 2500 recently, and I believe that he has had no serious pressure problems with it, in his 1 in 11" either.

BTW, Rock on there, bro! I still haven't given up on the hog hunt for you guys.....I just need to get my paid hunters through our deer season first. I still have your email and contact info....

Actually I had the 130s up to 2600 when it was 90+ degrees but I backed off to 2480 just to make major. It's cooling off here, 45 at the range the other day, I ended up using RE7 with the 90gr TNTs to keep them up at 2950fps. The RE7 flows better and isn't as compacted so it's more accurate for me.

That's a good tip. I'll have to look in to that.
