Anybody have any advise on this potential load. I haven't loaded any yet, but had a couple of people suggest it. Any thoughts would be appreciated. I have used VV-133, H-322 and H-335, but haven't tried H-4895 with the HPBT 69 gr.

My savage 1:9 liked 80 Noslers with RL22. H 4895 should be great with 69's.

My 12VLPDBM did pretty well with 23.3g of H-4895 and a bit of a jump (can't remember how much, sorry), averaged about .5 moa . Actually shot a 10 shot group at 500yds of 2.9" with 7 of those in 1.4". That followed a 1.733" 5-shot group.. that was a good day, prob never happen again.. :)

Thanks for the info guys. I'll give both a try. I was look at starting with a .010 jump and going out from there.

What cartridge?

The RL22 was for my 22-250. I use 24.4 Varget in my .223.

The BVSS is currently available in 223 and 22-250. The only 69 grain Sierra bullet that I find is .224. So, things line up. I'm going to remove my post as it muddies the water.
