    Adam,

    This is my go to powder and bullet in my 8 twist .22BR. Using
    CCI 450 primers. My load is 27.5 gr but be sure and work up to this.
    Very accurate, fast, and fills the case nicely. Have fun.:cool:

    Regards, Paul

    Adam, I like the 75 A Max in my Shilen DGA, 22BR, 28 inch Hart heavy varmint, 9 twist barrel. 29.5 grains of Varget and a Rem. 7 1/2 primer.
    It's egg accurate at 800yds ( I don't do that very often) and is very good on Prairie Dogs ranging from 450 to 800 yards. I would think that you would like them on groundhogs. Good Luck. John Kruzan

    I run it behind the 75 Berger getting 3250.

    I believe I'm using 29 grains of it but that might not be accurately could be 28.5. I can get back to you later in that.

    Great powder for the cartridge in my opinion. Consistent velocities and very good accuracy.

    Shot this group with the 75 Beger and 29 grains of 8208 today from my 22BR 3250 fps
    100 yards


    First three shots at 800 all found my Hong as well.

    Very good powder for the 22BR in my opinion.

    I'd have to imagine it's going to work pretty well with light bullets as well!

    I've never tried it but I believe in the 22br page there is load data for the light bullets.
