    Shooting my Mod 70 270WSM . 65.5grs of IMR 7828 these bullets shot very poorly. Also shooting 110 V-max 68.5grs of RE#19 these loads shot fantastic. Any one have experience with Hornady's SST line of bullets.

    I shoot the 140 sst and magpro, never found an accurate load yet.

    I shoot the 110 vmax and varget, always very accurate.

    I am going to try the 135 seirra matchkings again, this time with some H4350 and Magpro.

    I am starting to reach my end with Magpro, I get great velocities, but even backing off I never have gotten a really accurate load with it, in the 270wsm, 25-06, or 7mmRem.

    Mag Pro : That is very interesting I got high velocities with it in my 6x284 but marginal accuracy. Poor accuracy with it in my 270WSM shooting the 130 SST. Dang if I could only shoot in my back yard I could spend more time testing.
