    I have had good luck with the 69 grain nosler custom comps and after reading some posts on reloading forums about the 77 grain nosler custom comp bullet. From what I read it is getting the velocity of the bullet above 2650 feet per second. I had the powder so I loaded 100 as a trial batch just to see if they work in my rifle. I will post some photo's up when I get my rifle back from Remington as I sent it bavk for the trigger recall and its been 7 weeks so far and no sign of my rifle.

    The big issue with bullets and accuracy it's all a matter of stability. The longer a bullet the faster it has to spin in order to be stable throughout it's flight.

    Some bullets that are close to the optimum length for a given barrel twist rate can be forced to behave by using hotter loads. Unfortunately, hotter loads are also the ones that are most difficult to control when seeking accuracy.

    You may get adequate accuracy from a 77 gr bullet in a 1:9 twist rate but probably only at short ranges and it will increase your reliance on "Luck".

    If you're looking for a heavier bullet that will perform well in the 1:9 barrel check out he Berger 73 gr BT Target. I like them so well I bough a couple of 1,000 piece boxes of them. Otherwise I'd stick with the 69 gr bullets and work on both my load and gun handling skills.
