Re: New Rifle arriving Shortly. Need a Load! take a look
I got .4015" from the 70gn Ballistic Tip using 40.5gn of IMR4895 (not Hodgdon) and BR2 primers. My OAL was 2..2495" but I run everything .010" if the bullets are long enough.
My rifle likes the 85-90gn range of any bullet using 44.0-44.5gn of IMR4831 and BR2's. I have had the best accuracy and stability at 600yds with the 95gn Ballistic Tip, 44.0gn of VihtaVuori N560 and BR2's.
I have never shot the 55gn in my current rifle but I have the 65gn V-max. While these are quiet terminal and explosive on crows and groundhogs, they don't hold up very well in the wind past 350yds, in my experience.
Good luck and keep us posted. JohnnyK.
