    Anyone load for a 5R in this caliber and would you mind sharing what is working best in yours. Mine does not seem to prefer lighter bullets (180gr and under).

    208 A-max or a 210 berger and you will never look back

    Just curious, what velocity are you getting? I am running the same load but with 76.7 grains of h1000 at about 2880.
