My Omega likes 100 grs of 777 and a 250 gr Shockwave. I had to figure that out myself.

depends on length of barrel

if your barrel is less than 26 inches you are wasting money
a chrony dont lie
you really need a 28 or 29 inch barrel to gain an advantge in velocity ie omaga or cva optima pro


Or Remington Genesis...28" barrel and way cheeper.

As everyone else that knows anything about ML said...You have to get range time in and start with small charges on the bullet you want to use and work your way up until it is grouping satisfactory. Too much powder is a waist...ends up on the ground infront of you and causes worse fouling which really sucks when you need that second shot fast because, you were drulling over the antlers when the first one went off...

I do not know much about Omega's but I would start any ML with no more than 90gr (I use 777) and slowly work up until a good grouping appeared and then I would continue up until it went away and then back down and verify. Some good advise would be to record this data in a small note book so that you know your most accurate charge range. Also, gives you data to compare when trying new bullets... my .02

Good luck!
