This look about right? Going to load up some Sierra 140s since I can't find any Hornady 140s.

So I loaded up some sierras startibg towards the higher/middle of the range. Seated .020 off the lands. All brass was hornady fired formed 1x. Standard chamfer/debur/uniform primer pocket, etc.

IMR4451
Hornady brass
Sierra 140 bthp
Fed 210m

First three shots on 41.4 looked good as far as vertical, 41.6 outside of the cold bore looks like it's worth further exploring. It was at 2666 FPS. 41.8/42.0 opened up and were terrible and 42.2 started to look promising again. I didn't want to do too much with the sierras as I have 500 ELDMs en route. Middle target was hornady match ammo to verify zero.
