I assume your rifle has a 1/9 twist, and if so, it will handle all bullet weights up to 69 grains. Above that, you will have to try and see, because most of the real heavyweights need a 1/7 twist. Bullets over 60 grains are only necessary at ranges over about 250 to 300 yards. 55 grainers will work fine up to 300 yards or more, especially on calmer days.

If it was my rifle, I'd develop 2 loads; one with a good 55 grain hunting bullet and the other with a 68 or 69 gr. BTHP match bullet.
