    I have a 22 dasher with an 8 twist barrel, and I'm running 75gr Amax and 75gr VLD's too.was wondering if anyone has used Benchmark powder in a load and a good weight to start at. I've been using 32gr of 8208 and it works damn good. Just have a bunch of benchmark that needs used. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance

    What speed and barrel life are you getting?

    I was in the same situation.

    Found a node at 27.5gr Benchmark behind Hornady 75gr BTHPM with CCI 450's. Primer pockets still tight after multiple loadings, but this is getting close to the limit and may not be safe in your gun.

    I've only got 50 rounds through mine, but the last two groups showed promise out of my 7.7 twist. 80gr Sierra mk, CCI br primer, 35.2-35.4gr h4350, moly.

    What velocity are you seeing with the 75's.

    80 grain berger, 35 grain H4350, cci 450. 8 twist 28” Bartlien. I get somewhere around 3150 out of it. Its by far the most accurate rifle I have out to 400. I’ve shot it out to 600 and won a match with it.

    I have always thought that an 8 or 9 twist 22 dasher running the 69 TMK/65 SGK/75 Amax would make a heck of a sweet shooting varmint/whitetail rig. Currently, I run an 8tw 22 creedmoor @22" with the 80.5 Berger going about 3400 with 42.2gn of H4350 in Lapua SRP brass. Haven't finalized load development yet, so I am not 100% sure on velocity. Drops indicate that to be about right, but it's currently shooting around 1/2moa and I have dope/confirmed kills to 306yds, so that will get me by until after deer season.
