JP From Burns, WY –
I use X-Terminator in a 6.8 SPC with a Bison Armory 16″ Recon barrel with 1/11″ Twist. My load is SSA brass, CCI 41 Primers, Hornady 120gr SSTs, and 29.6gr X-Terminator. 18 shots over a ProChrono at 4200ft and 60* resulted in an average velocity of 2456 ft/s, Extreme Spread of 45 ft/s, and SD of 11. Accuracy ranges from .75 – 1.25 MOA using a 4x ACOG at 100yds. One thing I learned about X-Terminator is that it seems to work better with hot primers (such as CCI 41s or Magnums). I went through approximately 35 different loads (different powders, primers, neck tension, outside neck turning), and nothing was working to give me acceptable accuracy (1MOA), acceptable velocity, and acceptable velocity spread (less than 50 ft/s ES). I was running out of ideas when I happened to try the CCI 41s, and the very first load with them was what I wanted. After thinking about it a bit, it made sense, as X-Terminator is a small, spherical powder that is very dense, and thus would benefit from the hotter flame of the CCI 41s.
