Laddered from 53 grains of RL 26 ended with 56. No pressure signs at 56 grains. Last shot at 100 yards was drill. I'll stick with this for now. Savage 110 24 barrel Hornady brass, win mag primers, hammer 124 hunters. Love this gun and this round is amazing. Slight lift on the bolt but no primer bulge so good to go.

Should be pretty mild. We normally load with mag primers but found out that it causes premature pressure signs in the prc. We just loaded one last weekend with standard lr primers and got to 3470 fps. 300 fps more than what had seen before with mag primers.

Steve,

What was the load you used to achieve that velocity? It's rather impressive.
