    I hand load 168 gr Sierra MAtch Kings. I use 4895 powder. There is no noticeable shift in POI with the can but I have only shot 200 yrds with the can. The gun will hold 5 shots 7/16" at 300 yrds with my reloads if I do my part. I have not had it out to greater than 300 yrds since I restocked it.

    thanks for the info, i was running 168's out of my 20" and 26" BBL with 4064 and also 4895.. I have since gone to a 155 with 4895. I was hitting a 45lb workout plate at 750 yards in Kansas with a good full value wind with 168's, however when i tried to hit prairie dogs ( a much smaller target) i just couldn't do anything past 550. I think b/c I have the 1:12 twist barrel the 155's fly better. I have not tested the 155's on pdogs yet but i have done target shooting with them and I have had better results on smaller targets at range.
