    Default 6.8mm SPC loads

    I had good results with my Remington M700 Tactical in 6.8mm SPC, 22" fluted barrrel using 130 gr Sierra PH #1830 bullets, WSR primers, 21 gr of IMR 4198, COAL 2.260. 1"at 100 yds.
    Also, same data EXCEPT using 27 gr AA2230, achieving .75" at 100 yds.

    --Working up more loads using 26, 27, 28, 29 gr AA2230 for Sierra 115 gr HPBT match bullets. We will see how this goes.
