I run DTACS at 2860 with 34gr varget. SD’s around 5-8. Hornady brass and CCI 450. Have plenty of room to push them faster but this is fine for me. Could also run 36.3 gr H4350 at 2820.Has anyone come up with a decent 115gr DTAC load yet? Decent velocity?
I havent landed on what bullet I wish to use yet. The 109gr Berger, the 110gr SMK, and the 115gr DTAC are all in the hunt. Im wanting something in the 2900 to 2950fps range. Not really wanting to run a 105gr at 3k.

34.8 gr varget put me at 2900ish
Varget gave me some pretty big nodes that I’d be fine shooting in. I think any of these charges would have shot well. This was my data. I didn’t find pressure until closer to 3000. Obviously yours may be different as you test.Any actual nodes just over 2900fps that didn't feel like you were pushing pressure?
It seems like 2900 to 2950fps with heavier bullets ought to be the small advantage that the GT offers over the Dasher if people want to take advantage of it.
The Hornady Atips are the most consistent bullet I've ran. Across all my calibers.
That's one of those deals, where at that price, they damn well better be...
I dunno I’m thinking 105’s at 3000 is the way to go.
For what it’s worth I’m sitting at 2900 with 105s over 36.5grs of h4350. 1000 is 8.1 wind 1.9 at 10 mph.
You have 0.7 mils of spin drift at 1000 yards? Do you have a 1:4" twist barrel?I get 7.6 and 2.0 when I punch that in.
I'm probably at a higher elevation. And I'm using a 9 o'clock wind with a right twist barrel. Not a 3 o'clock wind. There is some offset in spin drift between the two wind directions.
I’ve shot A-Tips at 2840fps out to 1350 and can assure you those numbers make no sense.not wrong samb300... come here and shoot it

Speed doesn't seem bad, you may be able to squeeze a little more out but probably not far from roughing up your brass.I'm now 120 rounds into my 6GT.
I shot 100 rounds of 33.5gr Varget, new Hornady brass, and Winchester primer. Tested the 108 ELD, 112 match burner, and 109 hybrid. The hybrids shoot the best with the Hornady ELDs coming in a close 2nd. I can't get the 112s to shoot better than .75 moa.
I ran 20 rounds over a chrono today for OCW testing. I am not quite getting the velocity I want yet, but maybe the barrel will speed up a bit more?
The best load of the day was:
34.3gr Varget, Berger 109, and WSR. 2898, SD of 2, and maybe .25 moa at its largest.
