Anyone out there shooting a Remington R-15 VTR in .204 Ruger? I recently acquired one and am building reloads for this varminter and would appreciate feedback on favorite bullet/powder combos, as well as comments on rifle operation; good, bad, or otherwise.
Currently, I've been using the Sierra 32gr Blitzking and so far the best group I've had is with 25.0gr of IMR 3031. Grouping was 3/4" (center to center) on a windy day, which I consider pretty poor at 100 yds. Am using some old powders I have on hand, that are listed in the Sierra loading manual. Have used IMR 3031 and IMR 4895 so far, due to limited time at the range.
I cut my teeth on bolt action rifles in my "ute", and this is my first semi-auto centerfire, so really good accuracy may be a pipe-dream for a semi. Any comments from some experienced AR-15 style shooters would be greatly appreciated.
