Have not worked up any loads for it. Got it from a member at savageshooters and was going to put it on a short action Savage receiver....sold the receiver so I put it on a long action and shot 10 starting loads with H4831 and flat-base 139gr PMC bullets just to make sure there were no surprises with the barrel. It shot those ok but nothing spectacular. Fired 3 130gr Norma bullets and it did not like those at all. Fired 3 140gr Sierra Match bullets and it liked those a lot! If I kept the barrel H4831 and 140SMK's would be the way to go for sure.
