Bought myself a Savage 12 VLP .233 with the intention of punching paper out to the limts of it's ability, it's a really great rifle and accutrigger is all it's made out to be. Anyways, to date, I've been using factory ammo (Remmington) just to get the hang of the rifle, the trigger and the way to get the best out of it...and quite frankly, I was left wondering if my shooting was not up to scratch, or if the ammo was...well...turns out it was the latter (although that's not to say I can't improve, that I can certainly do..but I also know what I am capable of). Started reloading last week....and, after getting all setup, prepared some sample loads to try out using Hornady V-Max rounds. Discovered that the lightest load gave the lowest grouping. Interestingly, the groups got larger (proportionately) with the increase in powder weight. Having chosen a load, I hit the range again, and managed this. I have not seen this kind of accuracy out of the rifle till now. So, if your deciding on whether to reload...ask yourself if accuracy is your main goal. Out of interest, I also loaded up some Speer TNT's. Other than being hard to load because of the indent in the head catching on the die, they are also less accurate....but also showed an increase in group size with increase in load. Not done yet. got some more powder and bullet options to play with.
