    I did, very accurate out to 100 or so yards, after which they blow up. I managed 3700 fps. I should still have the load data.

    Quite possibly, the barrel was a 1-8 and was selected to shoot 130-140 gr projectiles.

    I will have a look and see if I kept the data for the 95 gr Vmax if so I will happily share it with you.

    Really sorry Phil but I can't find the data or just didn't keep it (very unlike me) I still have load data from rifles that I sold. I can give you every bit of data for the 6.5 Saum and 140 gr bullets but not the 95 gr V max! My guess is that when I discovered the bullets were blowing up I just binned it. What I do know is that they were pretty accurate out to 100 yards.

    Thanks for looking, I`d probably do exactly the same thing...
