Hello Vettez06 ,
I have a .220 Swift with a 1:8" twist barrel , 26" .
I contacted Hornady about load info for 75gr. and 80gr. A-Max bullets , speaking to Doug Derner of Hornady . He suggested that I try load info from Hornady's loading manual for a .22-250 Rem. The manual lists the 75gr. A-max , with load info for IMR 4895 , and H-414 powders , along with several others . Mr. Derner suggested that I use the MAXIMUM loading of .22-250 as a starting point for the .220 Swift , due to the larger case capacity of the Swift .
Send a PM to me with your E-mail address and I will forward to you the information that Doug Derner sent to me.
I use the 80gr. A-Max , and it shoots really well out to 1200 yards . I have not tried it at any longer distances , YET .
I don't know if the 1:9" twist in your rifle will stabilize the 75 A-Max .
Good Luck ,
