Iv'e been loading 40 and 50 gr.Vmax;s with Varget and have been holding 1/2" groups with the 40's and 1" with 50's at a 100yds.Barrel twist is 1 in 12.Iv'e been happy with the vmax 40's good performance on ground squirrells.Just for giggles I loaded some 50 gr.Vmax's with 33 grs. of VHT 135 holy crap! they will hold a 3 shot group  under 1/2" with all three holes touching.Now I'am really confused.Also my groups start to open up after 30-35 rounds the gun is a Savage 12 LRP with 26" barrell.Thanks for any input.

What has you confused and what input are you wanting? I did not see anything other than you have 2 loads that shoot under 1/2" groups.

if you have a 1:12 twist, maybe you should try a 55gr bullet

How fast are you shooting the 30 to 35 rounds?

My savage like to be cleaned around the 30 shot mark... I always bring the boresnake and cleaner with and run it through a couple times around 30... I shoot 53 gr HPBT Matchkings with 35 grns of IMR 4064 resulting generally in groups under a half inch at 100... Your problem could simply be a dirty bore I dont know how clean the VHT powders burn but it might be worth a shot to just try and clean it a little sooner... Bucky
