Shot 185 yards out of Ruger Gunsite Scout.

We used this combo last year with awesome results and we'll never go back to the FTX after having them grenade on us on multiple deer in previous years.


I've shot that load but out of a bolt gun. Its hotter than factory. Was wondering what happens to AR type guns when using a bolt only load. Apparently nothing in your case.

I thought they would be over gased and maybe break an extractor. Others though that maybe the bolt lock up lugs are not as strong as bolts is why.

Have you had any extractor issues with that load?

Did you get a deer in 2019 with those? I've not seen any reports on cutting edge yet. Curious if they mushroom or break off.

I haven't shot anything with them yet. I honestly just bought them when Cutting Edge did their annual 20% off labor day sale. My initial loads have produced very good accuracy. They shed 4 pedals, so I believe they will perform great on deer.
