Ellis, Man! I sure was bragging on you at Turcotte earlier! This 4227 was made for the SOCOM. It took me a min to work things out because I was also sighting in a scope the rifle owner brought to me...2 months ago...
After an exhaustive attempt at making my new shot camera work for the crowd of onlookers, I didn't bother with the chrono. Gonna have to make some mods to the ammo can to make it accomodate happy ground (it had a wave for everyone/very unlevel). I was glad the RO was excited to see it work though.
After trying 4 times (with no luck) to hit the target at 50yds., I gave in to my ego and moved it to 20yds. to get the scope roughly sighted in with the lil'gun loads. Then I boldly advanced the target to 100yds. and here is the result! 27gr IMR 4227 with the 325gr FTX is DEFINITELY a sweet spot for this Diamondback. Thank you so much for the solid advise! I owe you some whiskey.
