I hsve a savage 12fv 223 26in 9twist and was wondering what the best long range ammo/ grain bullets i can shoot out of it that will be stabilized and shoot varmints/targets at long ranges? I have a millet buckgold 6-25x56mm scope on it with mildot.
I've had a few Savage 223 barrels. All shot the 69SMK's great @ 100 yds but at 300yds+ the edge went to the Hornady 75 BTHP in some & the 75 A-Maxes in the others. Never shot the 77SMK's, heard more than once that they did well in 9 twist barrels. With all that being said, the best 5 shot / 100yd group that i've ever shot was with 70gn Bergers in a factory Savage barrel ... .107"
