    I have tried them with Ramshot hunter 45.5gr. This is the max load. Do not go straight to it work up from 41gr.
    I have tried H4895 at 35/36/37gr. 35gr was best for accuracy but only just energy to be legal for deer.
    I'm using a Steyr Pro-Hunter. Ramshot Hunter at 45.5gr and 35gr H4895 both gave 3/4" groups.
