Yeah, the Sierra 52 MKs shoot like a laser in my match AR. If I can hold, it's all Xs at 200, prone slow. If the "jump" is doing anything bad, my rifle has not gotten the memo. These bullets are scary accurate in my .223 and .22-250 varmint bolt guns.

I know Ceresco has been preaching the virtue of 52's for some time..Even though I have thousands of 69s and 77s guess this will be my next venture..Save the expensive stuff for 300+

Faster powders such as 3031 and 4895 are better with reduced loads. Other than the carbine bullet(s), most .30 cal 110s are varmint quality and give consistently good accuracy. The OAL is short, 3.09" typically. The "jump to the lands is a problem only in the minds of some...try 52gr bullets in an AR. Good Shooting. ...
My first run at 165 grain cast loads gave me 10 ring and full function at 37 grains of H4895.
Fun stuff.... I also have a cast load for the AR but accuracy is ...blah so far.
As for AR I snagged some nosler 60 grain varmint on sale last year and I'm loving those. Shot a 486
With my base RRA A2 in first modern military match.

I've never shot the Sierra 110 but I'm sure it's fine. I've been using 50 grains of 4064. I used 2495 during the powder crunch. Varget becomes problematic in colder temps.

I've been shooting 110s since 2009 and haven't looked back since. I took a nice buck at 200 yards and shot some 450s at local 200 yard matches.

What kind of 110 did you use for the deer? I occasionally load light .30-06 and .308 loads for young hunters. I have been using Nosler 125s. They are quite accurate, and made for game hunting. But if there is a 110 that is suitable for deer, I will try it.

Thanks.

I would guess the 110 Hornady Spire point would be suitable for whitetail but I also bump up to 125 for deer

I've jumped on the 110g bullet bandwagon myself for m1 and 03 loads. It's accurate, cheap, & recoil is very mild. I wish I read ceresco's posts sooner before I spent all that money on match bullets.

This was 6 years ago now but if memory serves right it was the Hornady 110 SP with 50 grains IMR 4350. Rifle was a savage 110. I stopped using 4350 with 110s because I was getting unburned powder in the bore. Also switched to the speer 110 SP as it is more accurate and seems to be more widely available.
