Yes, Johnny was a good source. He continued to increase his COL whereas I went to 2.25 and 26.0 of CFE223. That combo got my best results of just over .75" for 7 shots at 100.
At 1kyds in a 15-20mph wind I hit a 36"36" target 19/21 times. My best group was 3 hits at about 7 1/4". I haven't tried any more loads since. The bullets were the 88 ELD-M. Barrel is a 20" 7Twist criterion. My gunsmith said he loads a 90SMK with 24.6 Varget and a 2.26 COL as his go to load. Hope this helps.

Thanks for your post. It pushed me overtheedge.
I ordered an AR pre-chambered 6.5T Krieger yesterday.
