    Hi CC,

    Great start, i had an A7 first LR rig, it shot the 168 Berger's really well, I used 2217 but arguably not ideal bullet, jackets can be a bit tough. Barnes 145g lrx shot exceptionally but again not ideal long range bullet.

    I haven't tried rl25. I passed on my notes when I sold the rifle so I'm a bit light on load data, but always loaded to mag length less 3/4 mm.

    I'd suggest get to work on the 162eldm, it will give you great performance outside 400y and inside with careful shot placement.

    Good luck
