I have been experimenting with differn't weight bullets and powder trying to get the best match for my gun, Was just wondering what others have found for this particular gun, it has a 1/12 twist bbl.

My most accurate load so far has been:
Case: Whatever I use
Powder: 24.2 grains of Reloader 10x
Bullet: 50 grain ballistic tips (Hornady, Nosler, or Sierra)
Velocity: 3389 fps
I don't really shoot for bench rest accuracy but I can cover 10 shots with a quarter (at 100 yards) and to me that is 10 dead prairie dogs. And that is shooting a Ruger M77MKII, or K77VT in .223. But the rifle shoots much better that I can!

I'm glad somebody started that! I don't think 4 lbs is enough Redmistmd. Maybe we'll see somemore comments that will give us the right charge weight.
