    264 load

    I have had good luck with IMR 7828 with 140 gr. nosler partition. I get 3100 fps with 65 grains in a 24 in barrel and <1" at 100 yards and about 1.75" at 220 yards. This a max load in my rifle so work up....

    But is he willing to sacrifice 10 grains of bullet weight for the extra velocity, so long as it is a good bullet?

    If so, I recommend giving the 130 Accubond a try with Ramshot Magnum, H1000, Re22, or IMR7828SSC.

    If not, 140 Berger VLD, H1000, Re22 or 25, Vihtavuori N165, or N560.
