Funny you should bring up 55g. V Max. I was looking in my bullet stash yesterday and found the remainder of a box, couple of hundred 55 gr. V Max, so loaded some up. I've been shooting Varget so loaded up a progression of it to see how and what shoots best.
I'm toying with the idea of trying the CZ loaded with V Max or similar on White Tail this season. Still not to sure if the little .223 packs enough whollop. Could have up to a 200 yard shot. I know the 06 will get it done.
