    I am looking for some help. I want to shoot the 75 grain v-max in my 22-243's so can you tell me what your favorite load and powder is. Also if you shoot the 80 and 90 grain sierra include that to please. Thanks in advance.

    Try Retumbo, for the AMax and Bergers 49 grains of Retumbo behind a Fed 210 works pretty good. It's a nice slow powder that will help with barrel life as well

    Slow powders are barrel burners

    Silver, I don't know where you got the chart, but I don't agree with it at all. Your chart says that in a .22 caliber shooting H1000 A person would get 500 rounds out of a barrel. My 22-243 has 1000 rounds through it shooting Retumbo and still shoots bugholes. I have a 6.5-06AI with over 1500 rounds through it and still shoots less than half inch.
