    With your sps tactical I have the same gun and I suggest trying the 178 amaxes and varget I got the sweet spot with mine at 44.6 grains also 208 amax and 40 grains of varget both in my gun shoot right at .25 moa of coarse start lower and work up I would check midway for these and the others u are looking for

    Thanks for the info and sounds like a great load you've found. Well i have searched on every store i know for the Sierra and Hornady bullets and finally found some 150gr SST, everything else is out of stock. As for the Varget, thats what i was looking for and it the same way out of stock. Only powder i could find around here was IMR4895 and H4895. Hopefully i can get some good groups with those powders until i can find Varget. Whats ur info on that powder? Do u mind telling me your COAL? Thanks

    I shoot H4895 out of my Competition rifle and out of my hunting rifles. H4895 shoots very good with the 165 SGK's and 175 SMK's. Haven't tried the 150's but in one rifle
    and that was a Model 7 Rem. Used Varget for it. For the hunting rifles I load mag length and the competition rifle I seat. 003 off the lands. I single load them so it doesn t matter about col.
