    Just wanted all those who have helped me to know I have finally done a load that I am fantastically happy about. I tested and found that Benchmark with 24.3 grains with 55gr. Nosler Ballistic Tips in my Bushmaster Predator is far more accurate than I ever will be. At 100 yds. all the bullets are in the small red dot in an 8 inch target, with three in the same hole. I can never express how much you all have helped me, but thanks again. This is by far more accurate and alot cheaper than factory loads.

    I got the load info on Benchmark from my Nosler reloading manuel. The load is far more accurate than what I am. I have "never" shot groups this close.
