    Not saying I could do it every shot, 5-6 out of 10 maybe, real close on the others

    Don't know about 1:8, but my Savage 12FV has 1:9 barrel and I have some really great 100yd groups using 25gr of H335. Waiting to get out and test them in my Bushmaster which also has a 1:9 barrel.

    Another vote for Varget. Good luck.
