    I have a Savage model 12 VLP s-shot 22-250. With the current load the rifles current ave. of the last 10 5 shot groups at 100yds. is 0.246" ctc. with 4895 and nos.b-tips. needless to say very consistent. Everything is stock on rifle nothing changed and was wondering if I could improve performance with aftermarket bullets or maybe different powders. I shoot by myself so I dont know if this is good bad or just ave. I figured the heaviest bullets I could shoot would be 60gr. because of 1in12 twist on factory barrel.THANKS.

    I think that is absolutely fantastic performance from loads, rifle AND shooter. I would not touch a thing unless I am going to a benchrest competition, and the load you have might just get it done even at a benchrest competition in a light rifle class.

    haha if you have that much accuracy out of that rifle I would just leave it alone before you make it angry and mess it up. Thats incredible for a factory rifle.

    Anything under 1/4" at 100 yards should be left alone.
