I have a Tikka with a 1 in 8 twist that shoots lights out with factory 77gr Sierra GK. I would think that your gun would handle them good.

The 77gr Sierra are pretty tough so expect exit holes on predators.
The 75gr AMax is a better choice but is so long will normally have to be single fed as it will not work thru a magazine unless seated very deep.
Personally I would find 60gr VMax from Black Hills and carry on.
