    Im putting together a 16.5” Proof CF barreled Tikka for some WV deer hunting. It’ll be shot suppressed 100% of the time. Curious on where to get started with reloading data. I shoot the Berger 105 VLDs in my 20lb bench gun with a 26” barrel, but thinking of sticking with something in the 80-90 grain range for whitetail for added velocity due to short barrel.

    Anyone have any experience with short barreled 6 BRAs? Looking for most efficient powder to start with and what kinda velocity I can expect with a roughly 85 grain bullet. I have tons of Varget and H4895 as these are the popular powders for longer barrels but this shorter barreled stuff is new to me.

    How about 95 Berger Hunting VLD with <30 Varget?
