    Working up a load for this rifle and was looking to see what others are loading. All responses are much appreciated.

    190 gr Berger Hunt VLD, H1000, cci benchrest II primers, RWS brass.
    .020" off lands from ogive. 78.9 grains gives 3000 fps with 11 fps spread.
    This is a Bartlein 5r 24" barrel with 11.25 twist.
    I found I got more speed as I got off the lands with less pressure signs.

    I am not loading anything for my 5R now as I sent it back to Remington for the third time in 2 months and requested a refund. First bad Remington I ever owned, but I definitely got a dud with this one.

    That being said, if you you want to shoot heavier bullets in it, the load that JohnBoy gave with 208 A-Maxes/H1000 should work fine. A lot of 5R shooters seem to like that combo.
