I used Rem 71/2 primers for my load, and I got my load of 26.4gr of 2520 for the Lee Load Data book. Hope this helps?

I have excellent results with this bullet and varget. Im loading 26.4 of varget and .010 off the lands. I'm getting just over 3000 fps from 22 inch 1in9 barrel. This is one of my best reloads.

Go back to the 69s. I just did some loading with the 69 nosler custom comps and 26.1gr varget and they shot real nice. Not as well as the tax in my bolt, but I'm happy with it. Mines also a 20"

I think that 2520 is going to outperform my current load with varget. Soon as I get time without the wind whipping I'll find out.

I know this is an old thread. but my new favorite powder for my AR15 is AA2520. I taken to slinging heavy metal at critters now. 75 grain Hornady BTHP over 25.2 grains of AA2520 is may new favorite coyote load. If I'm hunting pigs I swap in the 75g grain Swift Scirroco II over the same load.

I am using the 65 sgk with 24 grs ot Ramshot Xterminator . You might try a mag primer with your Varget before you change powders. sometimes it is something simple.

When I started looking for a load for that bullet I tried 25.5 gr. of TAC (sierra's suggested hunting load) and it shot so well I did not even try anything else! Give it a shot

H4895 at 25.5gr and 2.225oal is what my rifle likes with this bullet.

Going to be using the 65gr Gameking on a Wyo Antelope here in a couple weeks. I'll find this thread and post results.
