I’ll be loading up some 124’s in a 6.5 PRC
For a spring black bear hunt.
Also gonna give the 181’s a go in a 300 PRC
In a few months.
Both the 181g HH and sledge hammer’s grouped well in my rifle, I hope to stretch the HH out this spring and see how far she will go.

Just loaded some 166s for a buddies 300 rum sense mine needs a new barrel and we got half in groups at 200 with rl26 and 3556-3559 for FPS I’ve also seen a 170 class buck dump where he stood from a 240 wby with a little bigger than a golf ball sized exit hole very excited to shoot these at game this year

Got some 166s Hunters for my Barrett Fieldcraft 30-06. Shooting consistent 1/2 inch under 56.5 of RL-16 @2840fps. Might try pushing it harder but not sure why.....

I'll post when I use it on game this fall (hopefully) and give a report on performance.

The 124HH in my CM was too easy to work up. 42.5 of RL16 is in the middle of a massive flat node. SD of 8 from 42.2-42.7 when I shot the ladder. Puts 5 into .5 MOA, and I haven’t even played with seating depth (just put them at .020 off the lands). This in a tikka that has always been pretty picky about ammo to stay sub moa. Averaging 2868. There was another node around 2940, but it wasn’t as wide. They’ll stay above minimum impact speed to 600, and I never shoot that far on game.
