87 grain V-Max at 3300 fps on my 6MM Remington Custom Mauser with 28"-10 twist Shilen Match.

3 and 5 shot group at 100 yards

To achieve the maximum possible accuracy, all variables must be remove or at least minimize.

The only thing that worries me about the V-max is that they may be a little too explosive for my needs. Although my main target will be paper I'd hate to wound a deer due to lack of penetration. That's some good shooting BTW.
