Hornady V-Max Bullets do not blow-up prarie dogs as messily as Sierra Blitz Kings. This is an extremely accurate load in my Ruger Model 77 Mark II Sporter 22" bbl. This is a pressure safe, but MAXIMUM load in a Ruger Mauser action. Be smart: start 10% lighter in powder charge. Cliff

on one of my previous loads I stated 3620 fps, and this typo should have been 3520 fps. Man, wish I was perfect.

Speer HP-TNT Bullet; I call this load "Top Dog," with 1400 ft/lbs of muzzle energy from a 22" barrel; RamShot X-Terminator powder is the cleanest burn I’ve found, while RamShot TAC stinks and smokes a bit when fired. Magnum primers recommended with X-Terminator. Cliff
