Mine shoots the 50 grain Z-Max extremely well with RL15. Every 22-250 I've ever shot would shoot a 55 grain Nosler Ballistic Tip in front of 35.0 grains of Varget less than 1 MOA.

Here's 10 shots with RL15 and the Z max at 100 yards. image.jpg

I used 40gn Ballistic Tips ahead of 36.0gn of Varget and Remington 9.5M primers. This load was sub 1/4" in my Remington VS.
My go to load for this rifle, however, was the 52gn Sierra HPBT Match in front of 35.5gn of IMR4895, lit by the CCI BR2. OAL (base-ogive): 2.1245". JohnnyK.
