    Another 30cal subsonic thread

    Afternoon all.
    How are people in the subsonic world going with 190gn Hornady SubX projectiles? I am just about out of the 200gn Lapuas I had been using and am interested in these as a replacement.
    Cheers.

    Loaded some up something like two months ago.

    Still haven’t been to the range to test them!

    Do you knowledgeable lot think a 30-30 in 1-10" twist (barrel length 17") would handle these 190gr SubX alright? I know they've got the factory boxed 30-30 option in 175gr but I don't think the 175gr projectiles are available as components for handloaders.

    Thanks,
    Joel

    Not that I have even shot one yet but id say you should be fine, have shot more pointy 190gr subs from 1 in 11 with no stability issues.

    As VC says you should be ok. Just shoot them with the suppressor off first to test stability...just in case.
