    I buggered up when I was at mcbrides today. I was checking out their 224 bullets and stumbled on the Hornady SPSX 55gr. Thought, awesome a cheap 55gr sp to load up. Looked it up a little later today and realized these things are made for 1-12 twist or slower otherwise the fly apart on the way to the target. Anyone in Austin interested in these? Shoulda just picked up the 69gr HPBT SMKs they had sitting on the shelf. At least I know that is going to be a kick ass round in my AR : P

    Ya watch out for sx rounds, they are super thin jacketed and literally tear themselves apart at 1-10 or faster.

    Sorry I guess I forgot to mention, I don't want you to have to pay for my silly mistake. These are free to a good home (or press rather : P). Its just a little 15 buck box off 100.

    How did the shelves look when you were in mcbrides? Was thinking about going by there to check out their reloading room stock but ladt time I was there a couple months ago it was picked clean.

    Bring 'em to Hicksville.
    I'll try to work up a load for my 1-11 twist rifle.
