    I have a Sav Mod 12 with 1-9 twist, shoots Sierra 69 grs. extremely good. I am wondering if I can go up to the 80gr. and expect good accuracy. Anybody
    with a little experience ? If so what load ?

    TexasGunner,

    Yes, you can . One of my hunting buds shoots the 80 grain A-Max really well. I'm not sure of the powder charge , but I know he's using Varget , winchester brass and Winchester Large rifle primers.
