This oughtta be nasty... I shoot a similar load out of mine, and it loves it. Mine is 175 Nosler Custom Comps, backed by 44.0gr of Varget, in Lapua brass. It eats them for lunch.
When you get a chance get some Berger 210gr VLD's and load them up with 39.2gr of Varget, and seat them where you have to push-fit them up on the lands when you ease the bolt down....You'll be shooting under 1/2 MOA. It's my new favorite load.
The 11.25" twist that our rifles have is perfect for 168-210gr heavies.
