A brave new step-match .223 experimentation

Ok, guys, I'll be experimenting with some new stuff this winter and upcoming summer. I'll report all significant developments.

The effort was spurned by my interest in .223 90 grain JLK bullets. In order to really get all the advantages, I need to moly them, which means I'll have to moly all the rounds through that gun. Rather than do that, I'm going to try the Hornady 75 gr. HPBT Moly bullets for the short course stuff, cause I can get them really cheap, and they're good bullets. So, the experiment goes like this:

Depart from my 77gr SMK/80 gr SMK loads, and switch to 75 gr Hornady HPBT moly/ 90 JLK moly loads. Ought to be a really interesting experience. Might be really frustrating, or might take me to High Master. We'll see.

The experiment will begin when I get my new barrel back from the smith.

Sounds like an interesting experiment. Let us know how it goes.

Me? I'm just planning on loading a whole boat-load of ammunition for "my" AR. For now I will stick with the 69gr SMK and W748 powder. If I get good at this game, maybe I'll experiment then. :)

Might be really frustrating, or might take me to High Master. We'll see. Or both. That's the way I would bet on you.

Thinkin it might take a while to get the pressure back up for the mollies.
But with your skill and training ethic....it should come.

Hey Sam, thanks for the confidence. Will keep you updated. Much won't happen until the barrel and bullets arrive and I have some time to do some 600 yard testing.
