    It depends what you want to do with it? I've got 150 gr Federal SP in the cupboard for stalking and 155 gr RWS for shooting at paper. However, it's surely better to see what your rifle likes?

    Sako 150g super hammerhead group sub 3/4 in my rifle and norma 150 Nosler BT into 1/2 inch but things may be different in your rifle. JCS is right you just have to try some and see what happens

    Mine is also 1 in 11 and 19.5" long. It works best with Hornady 165g SST Super performance. It disliked Hornady 150g SST Super performance and Federal Powershok 150g. It was good with 150g Superpeformance GMX and both Sako 150g and 125g soft points.
