Both loads shot to 2" at 50 yards in a 03 A3 Springfield. I typically shoot 3 to 4 inch groups at 100 yards with jacketed bullets in this gun. Recoil was almost nonexistant and noise was very low. I should have taken off my hearing protection for just one shot to see just how quiet it was. It was very cold and windy so i didn't do any more testing. Next time out I will bring my scoped sub minute of angle firing Tikka and test the loads using a scope.
My conclusion so far is don't waste the time and money applying gas checks at these velocities and these rounds will make fine close range plinking loads.
PS: There was no leading whatsoever with either load.
