Rl25

RL 25 will be your friend. It gave me the most velocity without "sticky" bolt lift. Ramshot Magnum works well if you prefer a ball type powder. H50BMG also works well but it takes a case full. Lapua 250gr. Lockbase bullets also work well.

My best results have been with H1000 and CCI 250 magnum primers shooting 2830 fps out of a 28" barrels. groups at 600 were just over 2". This a custom build on a Lawton 7500 action, single shot in a Manners stock all built by GAP and nightforce NXS 5.5 X 22.

How many grains and what is your cartridge overall loaded length?
