sjblair4-- you'll never get a 75 Amax to shoot in a 12 twist is the biggest difference...

sjblair4: With a 1-12 you will be limited to about 60 gr. max. weight. A 1-9 (Savage) will be excellent with the 69 gr. Sierra #1380, the bullet of choice as recommended by Savage in the literature provided with their rifles. 68 gr. Hornady HPBT also very good. Heavier than 69 gr., may or may not work-- overall bullet length begins to be a major factor then. When in doubt, go with the faster twist for more versatility. My 1-9s are all sub moa w/ 55 gr. V-Max also, and also are very good w/ 50 gr., but never went anything lighter than that. Just had one of my Savage 1-9s rebarreled with a Hart 1-8, and it is superior with 75,77 & 80 gr.

In my Savage 22-250 LRPV 1:9, I got excellent results using 33.4 gr I 4064 under 69gr Sierra HPBT bullets.
At 300 yards and with very good weather conditions, it performed at a consistent 1.25 inch group or slightly better.
In my rifle, the I 6064 was a bit more consistent and with better velocity than Varget, H4350 or H4895.
Just got some of the 80 gr A-max that I will be trying soon.
