58.5gr H4831 for the 162 A-max. 63gr Retumbo for the 168vld's. Good accuracy for both loads.

rl22, your favorite 140-160 grain bullet, and a mag primer. My brother uses rl22 in his 280 with 140's, and though it isn't an ai, he's getting over 3K with 1/2 moa.

I get good accuracy with the RL-22 and RL-19 with the 140gr sleeping pills. I would also suggest the H1000 and possible Retumbo.

Retumbo either 63.0 or 63.5 grains, Nosler brass,Berger Hunting 168 VLD and depending on temperature in the area I'll be hunting CCI200 or CCI 250 mag. primer. Really the rule is anything over 60 grains of powder in a case of this design calls for a mag. primer but as we all know every gun is so different to it's likes! Excellent accuracy and deadly on game! I wouldn't hesitate on using this combo for Elk up to 600 yrds. This may even be my rig for my Elk hunt this year in Montana?
