I haven't notice any accuracy different in 1:12 compared to the 50's.

THey shot well out of a 12 twist 700 and 9 twist AR. Hits on pdogs were nothing to brag about. Most hits looked liked misses. Dogs just slumped. No blow ups. And these were fast from Superformance factory loads.

I do not have any copies of my friends targets shot with the 53 vmax . His gun is a 788 in 22-250 w 1-14 twist. Shot very good groups with Varget.

Nice.

38 to 38.5 grs H-380, get off the lands 5 to 15 thou. Should tighten the groups on that Cooper real well. Should go .25 or better for 5
