    I have in the past, with a 22BR and RL-17, just a tad over 3200 fps.. shot 98.8 percent at Perry with it. I was using a Rock Creek 7.2 twist barrel

    Berger 80 grain TARGET, not varmint...jacket won't stand up to high velocity. 8 twist

    I started out with Varget, my favorite, is an Extreme powder -wide temp variance tolerance, BUT a bit too slow for 22br. H322 (Extreme powder), VV
    N135, Benchmark, in that order. VV expensive.

    skeetlee: I now primarily shoot 6br. Varget my choice. Shoot 80s and 105 Hybrids incredibly accurately-8 twist, though Berger recommends 7.5 for Hybrid, but that is dependent upon elevation from sea level.

    Lee,

    I`m thinking about the 22 BR AI and the 75 or 80`s with R-17, for that extra push......;)

    80.5 Berger for long range 22BR and 69 Lapua Scenario L for anything <600. Both are super accurate and have good results on coyotes.
