    This is my other tack driver. Model L461 with Mannlicher stock in 222 also. Reloading for a work up on it with H4198- 17.1 grains and 53 grain hollow point in PMC brass. Anyone using Lil Gun on these beauties? Share recipe please.

    I've had excellent results with 21.0 grains of VihtaVuori N130 and a 53-grain Sierra MatchKing. Groups were under half an inch out of a heavy barrel L46 and not much bigger from a custom L461 sporter. I've also used 4198 with good accuracy. I don't own a chronograph so can't give a specific velocity but the VihtaVuori manual does provide test velocities.

    For factory ammo I've gotten great accuracy with Lapua 50 grain soft points. Group size is half or less compared to Remington ammo. Graf's had a sale on it last year and I picked up a couple of hundred rounds; wish I'd gotten more.

    There's a recent thread with some comments about Lil Gun powder. Unfortunately I can't recall the title of the thread or which forum it was in. There was a lively controversy, with some denouncing it as inconsistent and one member describing superlative results. You might try searching on Lil Gun. Me, I've got a Finnish rifle, I'm happy with my Finnish powder.
