I am betting that if you grab those 40 grain Vmax and 27.5 grain of 2206H give or take a couple of tenths you should get a pretty good result. Using a16x scope is going to make it more challenging and be gentle with those collet dies.

You know ive got a bottle of 2206h & have not had good results with it in the other 204, a 222, & 2x 22-250's... :roll:

So i got myself a bottle of the 8208 for thjis rifle...i figured ill go for full cases & try get some serios speed out of this one...as the other one is loaded so very mildly...
I want to join the Marksman & SCJ speed demon club... :lol:

Dont bother talking me out of it--its getting stuffed with BM 8208...!!...& if the rifle doesnt like it, its gonna be your fault...!!... 8-)

You can get some more speed with 2206h with more powder than with 27.5 but I didn't bother chasing the next node.

You should get some pretty good results out of 8208, speed should be similar to 2206.

What make is this rifle?

Yes Marksman... :)

Hopefully ill get some time to get these collet dies happening...

Have you used those guys before...?-(Oz Gun Mart)-?...

If so, any good...?? :unknown:

Ive contacted them over a week ago about something else & again about these dies & not had a response :unknown: , so i ordered the dies from someone else...
I ordered something small from them to see if they are any good--hopefully they are more responsive with money in their account...we'll see...

I have bought off him and midway on eBay. Both no issues.

But he always is slack with replying when i have asked a Q... usually with an excuse that he was sick or similar
Blame it on the phone auto correct
