Re: 115 gr Berger VLD load for my 25-06

JohnnyK,

Are you using a OAL gauge to get that measurement? I would imagine that you would have to be haha. That would be seated waaaay in there otherwise. I use the hornady one and my seating depth using the OAL gauge is 2.748. I have slight marks on the bullet from the rifling if I chamber one and then eject it. It is just barely kissing the lands.

That has given me the best accuracy results.

Haha....that is funny. The max load that they sent me was 53.4 gr. Maybe one of us is reading it wrong. I am on the road so I can't check it. But for my gun, the hotter I went, the tighter the groups got. Good luck to you.

Cool...I must have the numbers mixed up. I just couldnt remember since I was away from a computer. Just didn't want you to have the wrong info. Hope the groups are tight for you.
