So after shooting the ptr91 with 150gr, 168gr and 175gr ammo and not getting match grade results from the match grade barrel, I tried some Speer TNT 125gr hp bullets. Now finally starting to see good results. Load used:
-once fired ppu brass
-Speer TNT 125 HP set to 2.755" COL
-Accurate 2520 at 45.1 gr

10rds at 100yds:
don't know what happened with the two bullets that went high
fired prone supported with nightforce 2.5-10x24 scope

That's surprising to me. I figured the twist rate would be a bit too quick to have optimal results for that bullet weight.

What brands of ammo were you shooting in the 150, 168 and 175 weights?

150 were Federal white box, 168 American Eagle OTM, 168 PRVI, and the 175 were handloads with Sierra Matchkings.

I cannot wait to get my PTR and start experimenting. I have some Privi 145 gr I want to start with...the NF may have contributed to that group as well,, great scope

Another bullet that I have had good results from, not as good as the 155 Amax, but is the Lapua 155 Scenar.

IME, the 175's take a little bit to go to sleep. You might try them at 200 and see if they improve a bit.

I bought 2000 Scenars bulk packed from one of the online merchants in 2008 or 09. They really are a remarkable bullet IMO. If the numbers are to be believed, they have approximately the same BC as the 175 grain Sierra Match Kings, and shoot with an additional 200 fps velocity out of the venerable 308. They are length tolerant too, and shoot true.
