You've got to love the little Swede! I shoot the 130 vld's with 45.7 grains of IMR 4831 and WLR primers. I also shoot the 130 gr. Nosler Accu bond with the same load. The only rifle I can remember where the same load works for two different bullets.The VLDs. give 2,680fps in my CZ550, 5 shot group cover with a nickle @ 200 yards. I've shot many deer with the little swede, have four of them in my safes. I've also had some good luck with RL 17 and H4831 SC in the little 6.5's
