Some barrels will shoot the heavies better than others, although you still need to push them hard. my 1:9 SPS Tactical will not shoot the 75gr A-Maxes better than 1.5MOA, however, it averages just over half MOA with the 69gr Matchkings.

my 1:9 shoots a 77g ncc very well.even the 75g berger vld.but one will have to remember that what might shoot in mine may not in yours.so get a couple of diferent weight bullets and go shot.but hey its JMHO

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
