    I've had great results with 50-55gr bullets with 25gr to 26gr of TAC.
    Seated to standard oal.

    My predator only cycles 69's.
    My load is with varget.
    Every factory load in the 52 to 55 grain range would run a few then not feed.and or jam.
    Once I worked up a load with the 69s and varget I have had zero feeding problems.
    Shoots very good too.
    Have not tried running 60's yet.
