Are you looking for load data? What weight pill are you using. Are you looking to use Short Cut or because you are almost out of it do you want to use another powder?

GB sent me 168gn target projectiles.I used 64gn 2213sc with 168gn Matchkings about 10 years ago and I still have about 20 left and they are good out to 1000 for F-class optical iif I am good enough.I will probably replicate this load coz I can get 500gn locally for $60.I need to join the 300 rabbit club and a property I shoot has a ridge about 300 looking across to warrens on the fence line.I am going this weekend

69gr 2217 just off the lands I never tried either at book OAL the vld's shot just as good as the eld's :thumbsup:
