    Thanks for the heads up.

    But I don't understand the point of buying 62 gr rounds without steel penetrators. Probably have marginally better accuracy.

    From what I've read the steel cores negatively affect accuracy. :dunno:

    Edit: Yeah I dunno why you'd buy non-penetrator 62 over 55 or 69gr.

    Because it's cheap and available.
     
  6. This. For plinking or practice, why not use it?

    Cheap's a relative word these days. 75 gr match PPU was in stock recently at $415.

    IIRC, right before Eric Holder triggered a run in Feb, M-193 seemed to be stabilizing at $330 online, Federal XM-193 was plentiful and was dropping from $370 to $330.

    If you didn't stock up on enough cheap ammo or reloading components for at least 6-12 months, you're just up shit creek without a paddle.

    Buy a .22 conversion and camp out at Wal-mart

    That and I can shoot it at my range (no steel core allowed).

  12. Even if you normally shoot 55gr and want something to plink with, the trajectories of the 55gr and 62gr are within an inch out past 250 yards.

    Their brass and bullet cost for reloading is the same as buying factory ammo.

    The 62's have more energy to activate the long range flashers if you shoot 3 gun. The 55's are known weak sauce. The guys who run the 16" and 14.5" barrels often shoot 62's to make minor pf (bullet weight x fps / 1000 = 160 or greater or your shoot for no score.)

    62's also have a higher balistic coefficient so they are much better in the wind.

    Again 55's are weak sauce.

    So you can shoot steel plates without damaging them.
