Tested the 85.5s today. Range: Austin Rifle Club 200 yards Barrel: Service rifle 20 inch 7T KBI, harvested from a shot out space gun barrel Chamber: .253 neck .140 freebore Loaded round COL: 2.603 touching Load: New LC 15, 205M AR, 24.5 of some Swede powder The same load I used with the 80 VLDs. Average velocity: 2687 Zeroed the rifle, fired 5 rounds of 77s to see how they tolerate long jump. POA was the "8" at 9, fired 2 of the 85.5s at the X ring could not discern holes (they are almost touching and about the same POI as the ones I shot on the "8") changed POA to the "8" at 3. Note the POI change between the 2 projectiles. I think I still have enough boiler room in the case to chase a higher velocity. It is cooler in Austin more than usual. After testing other rifles, I seated 5 rounds 0.015 jump and fired on "9". Group is still about the same as touching. Pushing bullets further into the case increased velocity a few more fps, 2692 average. It was also getting warmer.
