    A warm load of Varget pushing a 62gr pill seem to be just swell in my bushmaster 1:9. Ragged hole at 200 yards.
    My dear boy if 5 miles away they don't sit up in their beds and ask what the HELL was that, the gun is not big enough!

    My R-15 Varmint likes Hornady 55gr and 69 gr SMK's with Varget. Work up charge from 25gr. Lapua brass and CCI BR 4's. Holds .5MOA at 500 yards.
