They are running 21.4grs of IMR 4227.

What brake is that you have? what is the thread size, and is it available in black? I'm still on the hunt for something to put on my Blackout.

Very cool. Should be able to take out a whole group of hogs with that. I'll keep this in mind for my next build as I need 2 uppers and wanted something different.

Thanks Bones, hope so and yes very nice to be able to use a 5.56/.223 BCG and mags and shoot something different. Very similar to the .300 Blk out that Hawcer is building (even thou his is a bolt gun). I belive the Blk-out is a 1-9 so that they can shoot sub-sonics.

Thanks guys, I had a bit of a problem with the bullet seating die. As you can see on the TTSX's it would cut into and grab them and as I seated them it would bite in and before letting go would slightly pull the bullet back out. Not giving me the correct OAL. I disassembled the seating die and proceded to rework the inside edge of the seating cup to fit the Ogive of the TTSX now its much smoother and sweeter.
