Asym 185jhp and Fed 185swc.

I am a bit disappointed after trying Asym 185jhp.  It could not match our shoot Federal GM 185swc at 50 or 25 yards out of my Les Baer or Barsto barreled Wilson Combat.  Is Asym 185jhp a preferred load these days ?

Once upon a time ASYM was great stuff. New ownership and things went downhill. One of my shooters gave up on it.

How long is the ammo? Asym and Atlanta arms you’ll see in the line and occasionally zero and federal match. Most reload their own.

Are you machine fixture testing your ammo at 50 yards?

I don't know about Asym but I just came into some Atlanta Elite 185 JHP and it measured 1.200

On the thread congratulating John Bickar on a 2668, he commented

"Thanks everyone! I actually shot factory ASYM at the long line; I can't make ammo that good. But I did reload my short line ammo on my Star."




Maybe this was the older stuff?

What was the dimensional difference in group size?

I shot this so long ago I don't remember if that stray was part of this group or a true stray from a different group. Anyhow this is ASYM I ran thru my Gold Cup at 50yds using a Lee rest. Shot pretty good I think.
