    Rifle is an Accumark, Weatherby. I've been loading 115 gr. H50BMG, Fed 215 primers, Weatherby cases, Barnes 180 gr. Tripple Shock bullets. Been having pretty good results (1.25" @ 100 yrds) but I think the gun can do better. Anyone have a pet load they would share? Thanks in advance for any answers.

    I had my accumark rebarreled with a 30" Lija barrel and with a 210 berger with 104gr of retumbo and Fed 215 mag primer it shoots 3230fps and at 200 yards put 3 into 1/2" to 3/4" group. I couldn't be happier.

    Thanks for the response. Ho well did your factory Weatherby shoot before you went with the Lilja?

    I shot 180 gr Barnes X thru it with RL25 104gr but that was a hot load with velocities of 3450+ so I wouldn't recommend starting with that load. I got 3 shot groups of 3/4" at 100yards with it though. I decided to have my action squared and have everything possible done to it to make the gun shoot as accurate as possible thats why I got a new barrel.
