Yes, I'm wanting to shoot the 180g VLDs. I've looked at the 180g Hybrids and they are only available as a match bullet option.
I'm also leaning toward retumbo as well due to it's temperature insensitivity, but I wanted to try US869 due to it's higher velocity potential. I'm definately going to try both.
I've never used Vihtvori powders But I may use it if I don't get the accuracy from the others.
My rifle has a 27" 1-9 twist bbl, so naturally I wanted to shoot the heaviest bullets I could find.
After I bouight the rifle, I loaded a generic load using 165g sierras and IMR7828 and it shot under 1". I'm really excited to try it with the heavys and see what it can do at long range.
It needs a new stock and a better scope then I think I'll be able to wring out some really good accuracy. See Photos below. It's a Diamond in the rough.
