I got a 16" 223 barrel and Im getting .25" groups with 69tmk and 25.3 of Varget. Had an earlier 6.5grendel barrel but it wouldn't extract factory ammo due to tight chamber so I sold it and got an Odin works 20" from Joebob's. It shoots .5 or better with 123 Amax and CFE.
I was hoping to hear some reviews on the 20" 22 Nosler he makes. I heard his 6mm Grendel shoots really well and wouldn't mind having one. I think either will do ya very well.
That's really good accuracy! My Stoner 22 N barrel is a laser, I had it out to 500 yds with 50 gr zmax and it really surprised me. Otherwise I was thinking of trying one of his. By the same token my 243 lbc barrel is getting some age but still shooting well and the bore still looks good but I love that 6mm diameter. I recently sold and traded my 6.5 rifles except the wifes Creedmoor and I have over 1k 123 amaxes so thinking of that too, but the Grendel really never did it for me. I don't really deer hunt very often and have plenty of rifles that will down deer.
Truth be told I don't have any real needs, just want a new project! I recently got a 243 wssm upper that I thought might keep me occupied for a while but I went with a known accuracy load and it shot great right off the bat so I called it good.
My 17/223 is toasted so when I run out of ammo for it I'll have an upper to use. And my heavy barreled 204 is super toasted so same situation there. I wish I could find a good deal on something along those lines.
