    I have used N550 to load my Remington 700 5R. N550 is not as well known and used as Varget so you may be able to find it.

    Is that the largest, smallest or only group size shot?

    If I do my part it will shoot 5 shot 1 1/4 inch groups at 500 yds. I have shot a couple smaller ones and bigger ones but that is about average, and that is prone off the bipod. I guess I got lucky and got a good barrel.

    45 grains of varget in lapua brass is what worked best in my Rem 700 sps with a 26 inch barrel. My next best choice for that combo was 4064. Didnt see much difference in accuracy with the 168s but the 175 smks prefered the varget. I also noticed a slightly smoother recoil impulse with varget and the 175s.
