RL10x, Benchmark, Varget, H322, and N133 were maxed out at the highest load listed. Sticky bolt and light ejector marks were results.

This cartridge will shoot just about any powder and bullet accurately, but it still favors certain loads. I loaded up 10 shots of 32.5 Benchmark and a 70 blitzking and it shot them all into a .305" hole in a heavy mirage!


I love these two cartridges. Gilt-edged accuracy and easy on the barrels!
