Savage VLP owners - HELP NEEDED!

I'm looking at getting a Savage Model 12 VLP in 223 with 7 or 9" twist.

Just wondering how much room do i have to seat the heavy projectiles, 70+ grain?

Is it possible?

Thanks

    Very good to hear,
    Did you get it in 223?
    Should i go with the 22-250, fast twist?

    I got mine in 223 with the 1-7. was shooting sub moa at 100 using a front rest with 75gr vld's 25 gr of ar2208 and federal match primers. Mate it's all up to you with the Cali er I've had no experience with th 22-250 so I know little about it.

    Alright, thanks a ton mate

    Will defiantly take this into account, as if i was to get a 223, i would run 75's max

    It's really out of 223 or 243, i just get the feeling ill have too much recoil to not get to see the 'splat' and lose picture, its a heavy gun, heavy scope, very good recoil pad.. do you reckon ill lose sight picture or just go with the 223?

    Thanks mate
