Re: Savage 12 FV / Hornady 40 gr V-Max
Aloco is right on. You have to find a bullet that your gun likes.
I have found that one of the bullets usually shoots good in the Savage 204's, but mostly the Sierras. I have 3 of them and my buddies have 4 more. Only 2 of them shot better with the VMax.
If you were just starting out, I would suggest to try both, but since the VMax didin't work ,
I feel there is a high probability the Sierras will shoot good.
I also had awesome success with the 35gr bergers.
