Thanks Mike.
 
No I didn't know that.
I did a lot of experimenting, using different components, to come up with this load. I even used Varget, and had better luck with 748; go figure.

I'm using Win. cases, Fed 210M primers, 43.0 gr.s of Win 748, and 175gr SMK, in a Savage FP 10 with a Bell and Carlson stock.
 
Yep, 43 is the load!

I recommend the Berger 175 gr. OTM hybrids. They're designed to be loaded to mag length yet remain stable through trans-sonic flight. I've been running them out of an 11.25 twist. You can go heavier but recoil increases as well. Shooter fatigue will screw you up just as much as wind can.
