168 grain vld loads

hi,its me again btw this is a great sight and very full of usefull info, anyway, do any of you have any good load data for the 168 grain berger vld? I have dropped the idea of the accubonds after very deep thought and playing with the ballistic calculator, finding out that the bergers shoot just as flat as the 140 accubonds even though they arent going as fast (gotta love that B.C) and buck the wind better than anyting I have shot or even looked at, but seeing how this will be my new deer load and there is didly squat on the net for load data for this bullet. I was wondering if you could help me out thanks alot. oh ya iam shooting a remmy 700 in 7mm rem mag.

    J70070....168 Bergers and vv560 shoot very well in my friends 7. I worked the load up for him, but do not have the data available. If your interested I will post it when I return home.

    Jimbo.....I dont want to hijack this thread, but your right down the road from me. I was just wondering if I knew you.

    HIs load is

    168 berger
    67.6g vv 560
    Fed 215
    Win Cases
    These were seated to jam the lands a bit in my buddies rem 700 with a 26 inch kreiger 9 twist.
    Velocity on my el cheapo chrono was around 3110 and the load shot 1/2 moa at 700 yards with very little verticle. This load was about 1/2 grain over quickloads predicted max load but showed no pressure signs. I would back off this load a bit before letting them rip. Good Luck.
