Ok, just bought barely used black/blue accu-trigger 10ML II.

What powder/bullet combo's do you recommend?
Any recommended not to even bother with?
Any special do's/don't when seating a bullet vs the old ML's?

I have until next season to get this right so I'm looking for some advice AND where powder may be available local as well (west side)

4759 or N-110, 250 sst, Fed209a primer.

Start with 42 of each. Find 2,300 fps with the 4759 and you'll be done. With 110, add 100 fps.

Watch your vent liner. With sabots, do not let the barrel get warm. Make certain your scope bases do not touch the recoil lug. Make certain your scope base screws are short enough to tighten fully. Clean the barrel with JB Bore paste. 200 strokes and clean, then another 200 and clean.

That should get you off to a good start.

It came with all the books, tags, tools, DVD etc. + additional vent liners etc.. Now, the front base does look to come out maybe a fraction of a mm over the recoil lug, however, the recoil lug feels stepped down from the receiver anyway when you run your finger across it. I may pull the stock and put a caliper on it to be sure but it appears there's enough clearance or step down to prevent the front base from touching the lug - unless the lug moves?

How's the recoil measure up going from a 250 to a 300?

68-70 grains H4198 with 300 grain BO was a killer on both ends in my gun. I had a thumbhole laminate and the factory recoil pad was pathetic. But that was the most accurate load out of my gun and it wasn't all that impressive 2-3 inch group @ 100 yds. Some people luck up and get great ones that shoot great right out of the box. Good luck with yours hope it is a shooter

I am using 60gr N120 and I don't think recoil is an issue...no where near my 300win mag..... My gun will shoot less than 1" at 100yds.. I think I may have got lucky and got a shooter...I just prefer the heavier bullets..

Luckily I have a buddy who's a savage 10ML shooter and has tried many a bullet/powder combo including some 300's.

I'm going to start out shooting the book recommended stuff like EWC posted then most likely try the 300's just to see how they shoot - that is unless I'm shooting a 1" group at 100 yds with the 250's

"Supposedly" this gun is a shooter with factory load rec's - it was a divorce sale gun... We'll see.

Looked really close last night - the recoil lug steps down on mine so the front base doesn't touch it at all. Straight home with it and the breech plug came right out - liner looked good and came with spare liners too. One I really liked about it was it has an original old school high gloss Nikon on it - the old Nikon that didn't say Monarch/Pro-Staff/BMaster etc.. Had one of these 25 years ago and it was the best low light scope I'd ever owned.

Time will tell - I too hope I have a shooter
