    Hey guys
    Recently picked up a Savage lrpv with a 1 in 7 twist barrel. Just wondering what projectiles you could recommend that would be very accurate at 200 yards for a 200 yard comp.
    Cheers

    I had outstanding results out to 400 yards with 21.5grs. RL10 & a 52 - 53gr. bullet. Sounds weird but just try a few before your buddies say it won't work.
