I made some ammo for a friend that had a 1/9 twist barrel. They did much meter than the 55’s he was using FWW.

Must've been a very fast 1:9. JBM says the 73 ELD is 1.04"

I ran a few test batches with TAC and H4895. they shot OK but no better than the 69 TMK's which I use at 2 and 300.

Was surprised by how well they shot in my 223 cal Rem 700 tactical with 1:9 twist.

Didn't seem like a magical bullet in the AR, shot about the same as everything else.

I have been working on load for 73 eld match . I have only tried varget . I started at 22.4 gr and whent all the way to 24.6 I had a lot of random flyers. I seated the rounds at mag length 2.260 someone suggested I seat them deaper . Hornady say to seat them at 2.250 . I'm going to start over and try that. Also I want to use arcomp and r15 next.
My barrel is a criterion hybrid match with 1/8 w chamber . This rifle is my suppressor host and shoots very well with my 77 smk loaded with 22.2 gr of arcomp .
