75 grain a-max

Hey guys, I am wanting to get some 75 grain a-max's to shoot out of my ar15 out to 600 yards, and eventually farther. What are some loads you guys are using or know of, also what coal? Thanks a lot! Oh one more thing, with these do you have to load them one at a time like the 80 grainers?

I shoot them out of my Savage LRPV with either 24gr of varget or TAC with a CCI 450 primer.

Thanks for the reply superseal. I noticed that the 24.5 grains of varget is over the max loading, are you getting pressure signs? I too will be shooting these out of an ar, a rock river with 1:8" twist too. thanks again
