After conducting some ordnance gelatin testing with handgun ammunition today, (My buddy Vic came by and we were shooting the evil Black Talon ammo.) I realized I did not want to stop shooting. So, I worked up two new loads for my New Ultra Light Arms rifle in .30 Remington AR. The first was with Berger 155 gr. VLD Hunting Bullets using AA2200 powder. At 2600 fps I punched a 0.86 inch, five-shot group at 100 yards.
Just as cool was the practice/plinking load using Speer 110 gr. Deep Curl RN bullets. This load has hardly any recoil at all, put three shots into 0.65 inch and shot to the same 100 yard point of impact as the Bergers.
This has become the Gunwriter Assistant‘s favorite hunting rifle (Less than six pounds with scope – No wonder.) and he’ll likely use the Berger load the day after Christmas to put some deer meat in our freezer.
