The RIFLEMAN'S GUIDE TO RIMFIRE AMMUNITION


HANDLOADING FOR COMPETITION

HANDLOADING

[the real trick]

This massive section details every nuance of realizing maximum ammunition performance in AR15 rifles.

Topics include --

The latest ammunition accessories and options, including "80-grain magazines" and the new "super bullets" like JLK's 90 grain vld and the "kryptonite" PRLs.

Working up loads with all the new match bullets. The reader will learn how to get where he needs to go in the shortest time possible, and find the best long term results. He'll also learn about special load adjustments that keep accuracy and zeros consistent over the life of a barrel.

Case preparation steps that really work (and those that don't). Which tools and dies can (really) make the difference between average and outstanding accuracy, and what can be done to improve them.

How to determine the perfect amount of sizing for cases and case necks, custom tuned to each rifle.

Loads and bullets for both long- and short-range rifle use, including 1000-yard tips and a special section on how to get "bug hole" groups up close.

Choosing the right gunpowder, and the right bullet. Loading tables, bullet comparisons (real world), and which cases, primers, and powders work best. Also, moly-coated bullets!

And the "vld mystery" finally solved! (Or at least picked so far to pieces that anyone and everyone is bound to find a way get them into the x-ring.)

"Beyond .223," a separate chapter analyzes alternative cartridges such as the .22 and 6mm PPCs, 6.5mm-08, super wildcats like the "Bartlett-Wylde Rat," and others used and useable in the AR15. Loading and bullet information, case forming, and special concerns (including parts and gas system modifications).
