    Mine shoots the 50 grain Z-Max extremely well with RL15. Every 22-250 I've ever shot would shoot a 55 grain Nosler Ballistic Tip in front of 35.0 grains of Varget less than 1 MOA.

    Here's 10 shots with RL15 and the Z max at 100 yards. picked up a rem 700 Varmint-image.jpg

    I used 40gn Ballistic Tips ahead of 36.0gn of Varget and Remington 9.5M primers. This load was sub 1/4" in my Remington VS.
    My go to load for this rifle, however, was the 52gn Sierra HPBT Match in front of 35.5gn of IMR4895, lit by the CCI BR2. OAL (base-ogive): 2.1245". JohnnyK.

    I'm going to try some Nonperformance powder with 53 V-max's this year in my M70 Coyote.
