    I just put together a cz-550mag .416 action with an Loather Walther 28" bull barrel and had a Mcmillian A-4 stock fitted to the action. I need load data to start streaching this girl's legs. It has an 1-10 twist and I was wanting to run Sierra's 300 gr bthp. I have rl 25, rl 22, and n165. I am want to run her out to 1500 yds. any sugestions?

    I'm not a fan of RL powders. I've never tried VVN powders, but I heard they are very good.

    This may not help you, but I shoot 102.0gr RL25 w/ a Nosler 225gr Accubond. I get 3240fps with <7fps deviation and they easily shoot under.2". My rifle is a Hall Express with a McMillan Mchale style stock with the obligatory Arnold P. Jewell trigger.
