    a 1 in 12 twist will shoot the 60's and maybe the 65 but not sure. as they give 63 grains the max weight in 1 in 12.

    it defo wont shoot the 75 grains in less you have the 1 in 9 like the guy in the post above said

    Yeah realise 70g will be pushing it, 65's may be worth a try though.

    what twist have you got steve ? if its a 1 in 14 you might get away with 60's if you push them hard enough

    Stevie glad you took it in the spirit it was intended. I couldn't resist.... apologies.

    Good luck with it by the way. I have tried heavier bullets in my .22-250 (Sako 75) but anything past 55 grns is all over the place.

    Will be interested to hear how you get on and without hi-jacking your thread what rifle is it?

    Best

    No probs . Yeah realsie its going to be a challenge. Been offered some Sierra 63g heads, will giev them a try and let you know how I get on. Its a Remmy model 7 20" SS barrel. Getting some great groups with 50g and 55g(close to max loads) just fancied trying a heavier load, plus the range Im planning to join wont let me shoot loads over 3k ft/sec so I thought Id give a slower, heavier load a try. If it works well at the range I can see how it goes on Foxy!!

    Hmmm, I'll be interested how you get on with this. Apart from twist, will barrel length help with heavier bullets? For example would a 26" barrel cope better than a 22" barrel when trying to stabilise 60+ grain bullets in a 1:12 twist?
