^^Thanks.

I haven't chosen what to re-load with yet

Me and a friend are gonna get a few boxes of all that we can find and shoot them and find the most accurate ones and I will simulate them.

I'm in the final stages of setting up a new lee loadmaster press for 300 blackout.

I came in here to double check the accurate 1680 numbers.

I'm going to do some test batches with the 2 sets of bullets I picked up.

I've since stocked up on a considerable pile of hornady black 208 gr a-max, and I'd now like to clone that round.

I've got to get my autodisc setup dialed in...so I'll be in the garage experimenting.

Hopefully I can get a range day in soon to test them out with my new chrono.

If anyone has cloned those hornady black subsonic 208 gr amax rounds yet....especially with 1680 numbers, let me know.

.71cc disc was consistently throwing 10.96-11.04 grains of the accurate 1680, across the 10 that I measured. All of them fell in that range.

I've got 10 rounds built up with the 220 grain blackout subsonic expanders from blackout bullets.

I think I'd like to bring the OAL out a bit more, currently I'm at 2.020. This type of bullet with it's flat front doesn't like my bullet seating die very well.

I'll report back with Chrono details. I was going to make some different loads, but it all came together so nicely at the 11 grain mark, that I hated to mess with it. It may be perfect.

Just getting started loading 300 black for an AR pistol. I have some Rainier 180 gr plated "wedge" bullets and some 150 gr Hornady fmjbt bullets.

I have CFE BLK and Alliant 2400 powders on hand.

Right now, I just want to create some plinking loads with these components. I understand that IMR 4227, AA 1680, Lil Gun and H110 might be in my future Cool

Anyone have suggested loads for the 150/180 CFEBLK/2400 components? Thanks.

I finally got to the range last week and fired off those AAC rounds I made...a couple years ago. Roll Eyes Big Grin

The blackout 220 grain subsonic expanders with 11 grains of 1680 all fired flawlessly, suppressed and unsuppressed. Grouped nicely at 25 yards (about 1.5" shooting unsupported, slow deliberate fire rate. I came back and loaded the rest of the 190 bullets I had left. I forgot to bring my chrono, so I'll try to remember next time. I was wearing electronic amplified ear plugs (Samsung) and suppressed, they didn't trigger the sound cutout.

I had some fail to load issues with the leatherneck rounds, I think they were a little long and possibly not crimped well. I also decided to back off a tad on the 1680 charge. I don't have my notes with me, but I went with the next size down in auto disc which is .66. I believe according to the chart that is a very small difference. I also seated the bullet a tad deeper, more akin to the blackout loads above. I loaded 6 rounds and hopefully will get to the range later this week to try them out. I'll try and remember the chrono...
