    Hey guys quick question, pretty sure I'm okay but want to check...

    I need to load up some match HP rounds for shooting the local siloutte match. (missing tomorrow's event because I don't have the right ammo right now lol). I have a 20" 1:9 twist barrel on my AR. I should be okay using either the Horady 68 grain match or the 69 grain SMK, right?

    The Hornady 69 grains shot great out of my 16" dpms 1:9 when I had it.

    If it don't run right, check for the problem and fix it. You may have to open up the gas port, work with buffer spring tension, or modify the weight in the buffer, I guess you could stop picking your ears, but that never made my AR's run any better.. LOL

    So just FYI, the 68 grainers worked awesome in my rifle today.

    What powder were you using?

    Did you seat them deep enough to use a magazine?

    For my fellow Canadian's I have high praise for the Cam-Pro bullets 55 grainers are capable of MOA out of my AR15. I was able to pull that off with CFE and CCI Small RP over 3 groups of 5 I had .93, 1.05 and 1.03. Great bullet on the cheap.

    Couldn't read it all but main thing I got and think the main purpose here is to stress need to use the right powder. So I am going to pick up some Benchmark. Since the AR was originally designed for a lighter bullet and I plan to use a 77 gr Sierra HPBT and shoot it suppressed with a Heavy Buffer does that change anything in regards to powder?
