Re: 165 gr VLD in .270 Winchester?

I am replacing it with a purpose built long range rifle and going with a proven and conventional long range round. If I wanted more than what the 7 Remmy will do, I would upgrade to one of the .338's.
I still have that box of 165 gr. Matrix VLD's. I paid $68 shipped. Make me a reasonable offer and their yours.
That I understand, I would treat it like my first born
Perty much what I think, I go from 270 WSM to 388 RUM now, everything in between just is not enough step up.
