    Does anyone have pet loads to share for their Mk V's? I have an older Japanese model with the Pendleton brake. Had it out to the range on Monday and ran some handloads over the chronograph.

    500gr Hornady RN
    115grs IMR4350

    My load which atleast duplicates the factory trajectory at 100 yds with a 500gr Hornady bullet was 110grs of 4350. Its been awhile since I've loaded some of these but I'm not sure how you got the additional 5grs in the case BUT like I said its been awhile.

    The 115gr load is actually rather mild. You can go up to 120grs with that bullet/powder combo. Not that I would need to ;)
