    75 a-maxs were good out to 600 in of mine but at 700 they start to wobble.

    Some barrels will shoot the heavies better than others, although you still need to push them hard. my 1:9 SPS Tactical will not shoot the 75gr A-Maxes better than 1.5MOA, however, it averages just over half MOA with the 69gr Matchkings.

    my 1:9 shoots a 77g ncc very well.even the 75g berger vld.but one will have to remember that what might shoot in mine may not in yours.so get a couple of diferent weight bullets and go shot.but hey its JMHO
