Well I'm new so keep that in mind but..... I've been shooting the 75 gr V-max's with Varget (38 gr/CCI primers/2.6" OAL (this gives me ~1 caliber worth of bullet in the neck)/Rem brass/Lee collett neck sized to 0.002" smaller than loaded neck OD) from my plain .243 Rem 700 SPS Varmint and it's under 1moa (usually ~.75) at 100 yards. The 87's I have been shooting with IMR 4350 (40.1 gr/CCI/2.7"/Rem brass/Neck sized) for an easy .75 moa at 100 yards. They've been about the best loads I've had so far.
I have some RL-15 but never tried it with these bullets.
My groups usually have some flyers and I always include them in the measuring.
That is to say I think they could do better with a better shooter.
I think the flyers are my shooting and/or reloading because I often get three or four touching each other in a clump and the other one or two 1/2 to 3/4 inches away, frequently with the flyers right on top of each other too like I had two distinct POI's. I guess I'm not very consistent with how I hold the rifle but we (the rifle and I) are a work in progress.
