Why 155's??? This is not old school Palma. That barrel is not a tight bore 298 and 1:12 can handle far heavier!! So why? I recall far slower twists than 1:12 in Palma back in the day. So I would love to hear the why? Sounds like it would be interesting to hear.

I like old school Palma :-)

For F class, the 185 juggernauts I suggested would make sense if they shot well in that barrel.

Well I started this thread and the 155's have been the most accurate bullet tested in a 1-12 Savage F class factory gun...(until I put five 130 TTSXs with Benchmark into a 40 caliber hole in a 15-18 kts gust storm...but that is the ONLY smaller group of 20 test loads).155 Sc and Varget and 210m primers... even the case does not seem to matter, just realize some brass has very different capacity!

Fireforming some Federal brass with a light load of Benchmark yielded sub 3" groups at 600 yards with 165 H SST hunting bullets...
