TLM, great pictures but the bullet performance you show is for the 120 MKZ, the hunting version. I believe this thread is for the 120 TMT (Tactical Match Target) which is design not to expand plus have a higher BC than the 120 MKZ. I am finding good accurracy with all the Cavity Back Bullets (CCBs). I'm still exploring the performance of the 120 TMT. Below is a picture of how the bullet is designed for the 6.8mm case neck from mag length to loading long. You can load even longer than I have shown if your freebore/throat allows it. I have found that the grooves improve neck tension.
Anyone have data yet? I know you all are buying Yama out of stock, share you experience with this for the record. I suspect it will be close to the 120SST data, but came here thinking there would be much more. Thanks!
Thanks, this was shot from a bipod with no rear bag on a concrete bench. My gun is set up for prone, so I'm sure I could tighten it up significantly from prone, but the range I shot at doesn't allow prone shooting. I started at 30.7gr and went in 0.3gr steps to 32.5gr. Had acceptable pressure signs at 32.5 and I think I might explore a bit higher in smaller steps as groups were starting to shrink up again.
I figured I should reload this image since photobucket has given everyone the boot.
I did some 200m testing of this load yesterday after my final string in a match, I shot the same size group at 200m prone! I couldn't get any pics as they left the range hot after the match. This load is showing some great promise. It was only 1 minute lower than my 110hpbt load. I put 7 rounds into <1" on steel, after about the 4th rounds we couldn't really spot them anymore as the black mark just covered them.
Yesterday's conditions, 100°F, 5-7mph wind from 10 o'clock, heavy mirage, prone from Harris bipod, no rear bag.
