I saw your post about shooting a deer at 523 yards with your Savage 10ML. I have one that is a 10ML II. I have had problems with it misfiring after being loaded for a few days. Started suing a new powder. I think it is 5227. Anyway, my son-in-law recently went on a guided l mule deer hunt and killed a muley at about 200 yards. He was telling me that it was easier to get ML tags. I have never shot my 10 ML at more than 100 yards. I have a friend that has a 10 ML I who uses Lil Gun powder, which is a hotter powder, but from what I read online, it should not be used in 10 ML II. Can you share with me the load information that you use for long range and I will give it a try next time I go to the rifle range. Thanks and Happy New Year.
