    185, 190, 210, 230 Berger, 208 A-max/BTHP, 225BTHP Hornady, 180-200 Accubond. Of the list above, I would go with the 225 Hornady or 230 Berger.

    There is no BC and SD listed for hornady bullets, or i can't find it?

    And for berger bullets 230 gn they suggest 1-10 twist, mine is 1-11... Or do you think there is not such difference?

    your rifel will shoot the 200gn- 210gn bullets just fine.the Berger 210 VLD or the 208gn A-max would be my first two picks.and if recoil may be a thing for ya then the 190gn VLD.and powder choice would be H1000 or retumbo for any of the above I said to use.

    The BC is .670 for the 225 bullet. They have a new 195grn BTHP, but they don't have the BC listed for it yet. The catalog they have online gives the BC for some of the new BTHP's.
