Is this for the rifle you are bringing to Mucko's Piropiro Flats hunt 'dynastar'. I have a load that I think is fast and accurate. Reports from other hunters state it is a good one. 27.5 grs of BL-C (2) pushing a 55gr SPR SP.

I like anything with a 55gr Hornady projectile that is going fast but is accurate, mostly these are reloads. Even the Remington Police training rounds do a good job on deer.

After using a lot of 45 and 50 gr projectiles and the old foray into heavier projectiles I have gone back to the 55's, I like the Nosler 55gr solid base projectiles but I am not sure they are still be produced.

I have some reloads you can try when you get there.

oooh now I'm wondering bring the 300blk with 125 Nosler BTSP to Piropiro or the 223 with v-max 55's or blitz kings decisions decisions...

I'm torn ..... I love my Rem 700 CDL 223 its my go to - sub half moa rifle. But I'm begining to love the short 300BLK Ruger Ranch a solid moa performer with a bit more wallop and easy to get around with in the close country... I'd always been worried of the performance of the 223 on reads in the roar all puffed up but it may come down to the weather forecast now which one I bring down with me.

Regardless it'll be fun !!!

I wasn't implying they weren't mate, but because they are safe in your gun they might be deadly in his, especially if he's putting them in that new rattle gun.

Yea do know it. My reloads are standard recommended loads for that powder by the powder manufacturers.

What I thought you were referring to "Was that my reloads had not been full length resized and may jam in another weapons chamber"
