You will not be sorry!...excellent in my 1-7 16"

I worked it up using ramshot tac from 23 to 24 grains with the max being 24.5 in a LC case. The best group was 23.3 they only started looking warm around 23.8. Have no idea where they chronied, I can only say that I zeroed my scope at 50 yds with generic federal 55gr and I was 3"+ at 100/// 0 @ 200/// -3 at 300

I cant get those v-max's to do any good but I've only tried the 55 grains...I think my rifle likes the heavier bullets with the 1-7.
