 Lapua Hulls.  R-15 powder.  155gn Lapua Scenar's or 155gn Sierra Palma Match Kings to impress folks and kill varmints.  130 TSX's to kill big game.

Why yes indeed I can walk on water..............but I do stagger on alcohol.

Clay has it right no need to look in the manual.  No need for different brands of bullets just spend the money saved for some good glass for the gun

I run the 155gn Scenars well beyond max book OAL, as such I'm over "book max".  From a 22"-24" barrel the 155's get real happy @ 2800-2900fps.

 My only complaint about Varget is that it doesn't meter through a Dillon powder measurer as well as R-15, it looks like it should, but it doesn't.

I shoot Varget with the 155 gr Silver Scenars, but my two favorite loads use 168 SMK and 165 SGK over 43 gr of TAC.

Running 43.0gr R-15 in neck sized lake city brass with 175 matchkings loaded to mag length in the bolt gun.  Used for hunting and steel plates with mixed results on the hunting but everything has fallen when hit just sometimes carnage was not what I would have liked and other times it tore stuff up pretty good.  When the gas gun comes in I'm going to try loading up some 110gr. barnes x bullets or some 125gr nosler bt's as plinker rounds and for deer gun while walking.
