Before you get too involved in that heavy bullet, check the twist of your rifling. It takes a faster twist to stabilize the longer bullet so that you get decent accuracy.

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the 1 in 9 is the faster twist, which will stabilize the heavier bullets.

Have fun, Art
