40 gr Hornady V-Max. Seated .003 off lands. No pressure problems, good velocity, cases are going into the 10th reloading. Neck sizing only with Wilson dies - minimum neck tension bushing and very little brass working. In Remington Model 7 walking varmint.

Hornady V-Max Bullets do not blow-up prarie dogs as messily as Sierra Blitz Kings. This is an extremely accurate load in my Ruger Model 77 Mark II Sporter 22" bbl. This is a pressure safe, but MAXIMUM load in a Ruger Mauser action. Be smart: start 10% lighter in powder charge. Cliff

This is a great load for a heavy barrel Thompson Encore. Accurate out past 500 yards from a 1 in 12 twist 26" barrel. Not sure I would trust the Nosler Ballistic Tip bullet to perform well out at those ranges.

Speer HP-TNT Bullet; I call this load "Top Dog," with 1400 ft/lbs of muzzle energy from a 22" barrel; RamShot X-Terminator powder is the cleanest burn I’ve found, while RamShot TAC stinks and smokes a bit when fired. Magnum primers recommended with X-Terminator. Cliff

Hornady V-Max - CCI400 primer - 22" bbl - crisp coyote culler - chronographed velocity - Remington brass - Ruger Model 77 Mark II Sporter - I average 80 rounds a week at 100 yards; Iím getting fairly accurate. Practice is essential.

This load, using Winchester brass and a Nosler 60g bullet that was cancelled about 10 years ago, shoots groups that are dependably less than half an inch in my "stock" Ruger 77, stainless/synthetic. When Nosler cancelled this bullet I bought all I could find and only have about 300 left. When I run out I guess I’ll start using the 69g Sierra...
