Surprised you are not running more powder. At 57.5 Retumbo I had an occasional flyer. Wound up at 56.5 and then seated bullets .100 off. 200 yard zero nets .25moa groups.

Last outing I shot 1500 and 1660 with adjusted speed at about 3000 fps. 46 moa for 1660, 7000 ft, 78 degrees.

I'm running very similar loads and speeds out of my 24/26" rifles.

Well thanks to you buddy I have a working load. Thanks a million. I have shot 4" groups at 1000 with this set up if I do my job.

Greyfox knows what he is doing. If he says try something do it.

I appreciate the kind words Brent. Sure looks like like you have that Savage ready for some serious long range hunting!

Wish I could get mine shooting like that. Just started working with it again. Still getting flyers. I want to shoot the 140 VLD hunting bullets but if I can't get it tuned in on them soon I may try another bullet to try to scrap together any accurate load for season
