I am looking for your ideas for store bought ammo for a Colt Accurized 24" rifle, 1in9 twist, stainless barrel. I am thinking Black Hills Remanufactored because I can get them at a reasonable rate. Looking for bullet weights, moly or not, Vmax, Sierra, ect... A bunch to chose from so let me know what you have found.

i shoot the black hillls blue box (reman i think) in 55gr FMJ and 52gr match hollow pt the hollows shoot awesome and im shooting them out of the same exact gun as yours so they should work great for you.

My 1in9 Stainless barrel REALLY likes Fed 69gr Gold Medal Sierra Matchking BTHP (GM223M). It's expensive, but you should try it....very consistant grouping at long distance.

Try the 55grn NBT load. My CR6724 used to love the Georgia Arms 55grn NBT RELOADS.

+1 on the 52gr. The most accurate 100 yd. round that I have found are 52gr. They shoot very accurate out of 1/7, 1/8, and 1/9. I have the EXACT rifle that you do and the most accurate and practical 100yd round that I have found is actually a handload that uses a 52gr Hornady A-Max bullet. 1/2" groups on a calm day 3/4"~1" groups on a more windy day.

In my experience, I have found that moly really doesn't, just outright, improve accuracy. What I have noticed is that in a varmint / range queen rifle it will keep your barrel from copper fouling as bad and your groups won't widen as the day goes on. So, if you are one that goes shooting all day, then moly could be an advantage for you.

FYI -- The A-Max and the V-Max are the same bullet. Differene being that the A-Max are held to tighter weight deviation constraints. Therefore, if you are looking for better accuracy, the A-Max may be a better choice over the V-Max. I believe BH makes a reman A-Max.

Let us know what you find works best.

I've shot the best loads with hornady TAP 75grain and black hills 75/77 grains loads.

Out of a 1/9 barrel? Interesting.

I have shot a few thousand 55gr Nosler Ballistic Tips through my Colt 6724, even Federal American Eagle and XM193 work good through it
