Theyíll sell out in about 15 minutes like they always do. I think I still have 10 or 12 boxes laying around from a few years ago I have not opened yet and a little over 600 rounds still loaded up so Iím good to go.

I bought some on SUNDAY and they are still listed in stock now 4 or 5 days later. I'm surprised they didn't get snatched up. I hesitated about a year ago when they got in some Sierra 63gr SMP which also shoot very well but they were gone the next day.

Looks like the ammo/reloading shortage is starting to get a little better. I've noticed more availability the last couple weeks than I have in a long time. Hopefully it continues to improve.

I have never tried these before. I loaded up a couple batches today. 1 lot with Varget and 1 lot with AR-Comp.

26.5 grains of Varget dropped from a 6 inch drop tube is very compressed.

Will post results and velocities when i can.

I tried Varget, AR-Comp and AA 2015.

AA 2015 was the clear winner. Huge accuracy window with velocity around 2935fps out of an 18 inch barrel.

I never thought this bullet would be so accurate!

My 1st run out of a minor clean was with AA2015, & printed a 5 shot 1/2" group. My second 5 shot group would have been in the 3's if it were not for one flier that made it a .6.......

3rd group was a .7 and the last 5 shot group would have been a .8 but a flier made it come in just under an inch.

This was using mixed WW brass with multiple unknown firings, & Federal AR match primers.

Varget and AR-Comp would do a .8, then a 1.2 etc and kind of be all over.

I have never seen a powder change make such a huge difference as this.

It was 80į+ and i started to see a bit of pressure at 24.0 grains with velocities around 3000+ fps.

When i get time i will go out and do the same run all over again and see if it is repeatable.

If you like how they do on paper wait till you try them on a coyote! DRT! Everyone Iíve shot so far I couldnít tell where the entrance hole was and if I got an exit it was either not noticeable or up to 50 Cent piece size. All shots were 250 yards and under. My LTR ran a 150 FPS faster at 2975 FPS (with a slower twist than my POF) I didnít get exits. My POF ran at 2850 FPS I got quarter to fifty cent sized exits. All DRT and never flinched.

Shipping might be free but the 60 gr Vmax are $5/100 more than Midsouth Shooters.
