It was my full intention this morning to finish my write up of the FNX-9 pistol from FN. First I had to dive out to Dove’s Custom Guns to pick up a NAA Guardian in .32 NAA. I’m anxious to try this little pistol. It’s a19 ounce, 4.75 inch semi-auto that launches a 60 JHP bullet at 1200 fps. More on that next week.
When I got home and walked into my office I realized it looked like a hideout for a radical Islamic terror cell! Somewhere in the mess was a pound of Re 7 powder. I dreaded the clean-up but found the powder and some other cool stuff I forgot I had.
By 4 PM I had managed to create some order and stepped into the loading room to give the Re 7 a try in my new favorite cartridge; the .30 Remington AR. Ramshot Xterminator had been producing good accuracy but velocities were lower than I’d hoped.
34.5 grains of Reloader 7 behind a 110 grain Barnes TSX produced 2960 fps and groups just shy of 1.5 inches. Not the most accurate load I’ve found for the R15 but according to the Sierra Infinity program it should only be eight inches low at 300 yards with a 200 yard zero. This should be a prefect whitetail load for me or my gunwriting assistant.
No guns tomorrow, I’m taking my dad and the rest of my family to our little school bus on the river. Hey, it’s father’s day! Make sure you thank yours.
