Do you think it will work well in a 8" twist barrel at 223 Rem velocity?

The 1:8 will do it, if you are running an AR you have to single load them, cannot get them to magazine length.

These are going in a Trainer rifle. It will allow me to practice the weird positional stuff, it reportedly holds the same trajectory as a 6.5 Creedmoor out to 600 yards, and I'm not costing barrel life on the 6.5 Creedmoor. Also a secondary prairie dog rifle.

I have a Bartlein M24/M40 contour, stainless, 1:7.7 twist that is going to finish at 24", and be chambered in .223 Ackley Improved. According to dee, I might see 3000 fps MV. Bullets and Lapua brass arrived yesterday.

I have a box of those but never opened them. 77 MKs shot so well I just stopped developing and ordered 500 more. Now if they make an ELD-X I may start over.

Pretty sure a coyote will be hit with one of these. I'll let everyone know how that goes.
