I had trouble with the Berger 88's out past 500 yards unless I used loads that were over max in the book with my 6mm. I got around that with a tip Bob Milek gave me once for about 125 fps greater velocity. The 88 takes a lot of spin to keep it stable. A regular 87 grain bullet will work well at 500 yards and be easier to stabalize. What I never tried was H1000 powder in the 6mm, and this seems to give a little more velocity in my 6mm/250AI. So this might be the ticket for driving Berger 88's.
