I need a few more parts to finish this build. I would like to hear from people shooting this round. How Accurate and at what distances. Reload recipes. And any other tips.
I purchased one box of 77 gr HPBT. I should be at the range sometime next week. Thanks.

I doubt too many people are shooting this and I doubt many will.

WHY?
Took mine to the range today. More accurate than my 223.

I think the concept is great, but we'll see how the public accepts it. If ammo prices are kept down, I think it would make an amazing long range trainer round. The 77gr should be able to easily make it to the thousand yard line. A very low recoiling round capable of a grand? I'd be interested! And it was developed in part by our own (by that I mean local and member here) Scott Milkovich!

No, the concept actually isn't great at all. I'm not sure what planet you live on where 77's are easily shot at 1k, but there are many accomplished shooters that have given up on the idea of shooting 90's (from a bolt gun with a 30" tube no less) at 1k.

The 22 bowler case is as long as a standard 223 case so running 80-90 grain bullets from a mag still isn't possible. So you're stuck shooting 77's, which are good for about 600 yards, with a little less drift and drop. What's the point? Get a 6 fat rat/ar turbo and shoot the much better 105-108 grain 6mm bullets and smoke anything coming out of a 224 barrel. If you're stuck on running a 224 cal then get the 224 version of the fat rat and run 90's from a mag with room to spare.

It seems that some people get stuck on certain calibers and will not try anything new. I am just the opposite. The older I get the more I want to try new things. So far I love my 22 Nosler with factory loads. Can't wait to get started on making my own. Fun.
