Looks like I still have some work to do in trying to find which powder / bullet my rifle likes. These targets are with RL-22, 48 and 49 grains with a Nosler160 grain Partition. Still a good day at the range. I shot two rounds of trap with an old model 12, and 357 Max with a 215 cast and 16.5 grains of IMR 4227 and then a box of .38 specials thru the police service six 38, ..

Sam,

Don't give up on the 160's. Try the Sierra persuasion...160 Gr. Gameking boat tail. Has worked for me in a 7x57, 280 Rem. and a 7x64 Brenneke. Drive it just below max and see what happens. Oh, and while they ain't no Nosler Partition they will kill deer dead dead.

Mine's a bit fussy as well. My load that works is 48gn H4350 and the 150gn Sierra BT.
