Thread: 40 grain v max

    40 grain v max

    Evening all just a quick question what would be the best powder to load 40 grain v max in a sako 75 1 in 12 twist. 28 grains off varget works very well but it a very compressed charge nearly over flow. Want to get them out fast.

    Im getting 3650fps -40grn Vmax out of a 20inch barrel (1:12 Shelin barrel) with 27.8 grains of benchmark in .223, one hole groups at 100yrds.
    its a slightly compressed load with no pressure sighns. Start at 25.5 grn and work up. I went up as far as 28.3 and backed down to 27.8 which was the best results accuracy wise.

    After much experimentation, 24.5 grains of Reloder 10X gives me the best results out of my 1:12 24" barrelled .223 using 40gn VMax.

    40 Grain Nosler, but 23.5 grains of Vit N-120 does it for me.

    40's in either a 222 or 223, Reloder 7 is the nuts, Benchmark is also excellent. H322 worked for me in a pinch, but woould always prefer the first two.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......
