    58gr vmax

    Hi I am just about to start loading some 87gr vmax i will give your loads a try.

    For 58gr i use 46gr of H414, Federal 210 primers, OAL 2.620 inches. The rifle is a remington 700 cdl in .243 with an aftermarket Jewel trigger, With the rifle scoped at 100yds it is flat to 150yds and drops about an inch at 200. Good enough for me.

    cheers geoff
