An ideal all around weight for this short rifle, but a hot load which groups 1/4" in this is a M38 sporter, ala Kimber, with a free floated 21" barrel. One caveat. Start low and work up to this hot load, the barrel on this Swede is shot out, but still shoots too good to replace. Charge not stated as pressures could be much higher in your rifle, and good barrel.

Hornady V-max bullets. This load is touchy about seating length, It is out of a M 38 swede that has been sporterized and scoped so jumping long ways to lands and then 1 in 7 3/4 twist. It shows no pressure signs in this rifle but using mag primers may be towards top end. If bullets seated right distance I kid you not, 100 yds, I get less than 1" consistantly and several 3 shot groups have been ragged holes. Play with seating in your rifle. Keep it safe
