75 gr Hornady HPBT

My 1:9" Savage bolt Edge (now called Axis) shoots the 75 gr Hornady HPBT best, most noticeably at 400 yards (uphill) using a maximum load of WC844 (H335). CCI 400 primers work but perforate in this load. I need to work it up again with CCI#41's which have a thicker primer cup. It seems to be a very good combination of full case capacity, aerodynamics, velocity x mass = momentum, and correct stabilization.
An added advantage is PRICE, that bullet is relatively inexpensive @ $16.19 per 100 from Midway. Wideners sells a similar MB2275HP 500 22CAL 75GR HPBT $65.00 /500 . i will buy some my next order.
