    I've tried all the bullets mentioned and settled on the 80.5 Fullbore. Surprisingly jumping them .035 to .040 best for me. No issues with vertical, we'll see how I do in the 600yd at Butner this weekend!

    75 or 80 A MAX does it for me

    For some reason the AMU and the Reserve service rifle teams use 75 VLDs for their 600 yard load. There must be something to the 75s that they chose them over any other.

    You'd have to look at the specific restrictions for those classes of shooters. They may well be limited on bullet weight and/or COAL. There are no such limitations in F-TR, so using anything other than the 90 VLDs means you will be giving up a lot in terms of wind deflection.
