Ive got 8 lbs of Red Dot. It works well for .308 but would like input on 223/556 options.
ETA: Hoping for 77gr BTHP loads
I don't suggest 4.0gr Red Dot.
I think I had 5 rounds made up.
Low (that made it out): 629fps
Somewhere, member Twitchy tried 4.6gr and had wild numbers.
I used trailboss. IIRC it was 5 gr but dont remember 100%. They worked. Didnt cycle of course but was neat to make. Never made any after that tho.
Thanks for the replies. Yeh i know subs wont cycle but wanted to work on some loads.
