    These were being shot in a custom 1000 yard rifle that consistently shoots 6 inch groups at 1000. I have tried them in several of my bench rest rifles and I hate them. Maybe I just expect too much from them, but they sure are not match accuracy.

    I have a hunch the 1000yd rifle was throated for heavy bullets and the twist rate is faster than 9. Which is exactly why the Vmaxes wouldnt shoot.

    That would have been my guess as well, but the twist was within the range suggested by Hornaday. That is not the case with my .30br, or my 6ppc and
    neither of them will shoot them that well either. I am not talking about awful accuracy, but most definitely sub par to a good match grade hollow point.
