For you guys that shoot the Bushmaster Predator and use 69 grain Sierra's, what C.O.L. are you using? Thanks.

I like 2.255"

You will notice Sierra's Match Kings have burrs on the end of some hollowpoints. These will end up longer than the rest. Find a bullet with a very pronounced burr and make sure it seats at 2.260" or slightly less. The rest of the bullets will feed and function fine through the magazine.

I usually use 2.250" as a safety measure. I wouldn't seat them any deeper.
