YES! In my 1-9 bushy, they shoot very well. They should do as well in a 1-8. The 60 grain Hornady HP may do a little better in mine, but it's splitting hairs to tell the difference.

Work up to 26g of Varget with a Rem 7-1/2 primer. Very accurate from my 1 in 9 Bushy.

I've shot the 50gr VMAX in my 1:9 20" AR. These are extremely accurate bullets. I used 25gr-26gr of H335. Best 5 shoot group was 0.29" at 50yrds open sights. These are very nice projectiles.

My AR, when I had it, liked a minimum of 26.5 Grs. of Varget with a Fed primer and the 60 Gr. V-Max.

Isn't the 60 grain V-Max the bullet that Hornady uses in its TAP ammo? If so, it ought to be damned accurate with the right load. Anybody know?

It shoots really well in my .222 Mag for sure. I use H335 behind it. :)

Oh yea, I have to push it hard in my .222 mag. 1/14 twist.
