53gr vmax
41.5gr Biggame
Rem 9 1/2
Nosler cases

The rifle is a Savage 110 still wearing the factory stock, with 26" Shillen Premium Match grade Barrel #5 conture, The action was trued when the barrel was installed.

The next step is to give it a laminated thumb hole stock with extra wood left on so I can make it fit me.

Varget was one of the powders I initially started with. I went with Biggame only because it's a ball powder. They both produced similar accuracy in the early stages getting better the harder I pushed it. Varget should work for ya.
