Great combination, I use to have a std. Ruger SS Hawkeye in .300WM and shot Berger 185gr VLD's and my hunting buddy had a Savage (I think) and he used Berger 190gr VLD's. Both loads were 3.375" oal, my primer was cci 250, my load was 78.0gr's Alliant RL-25, his was 77.0gr's of Alliant RL-25. Velocities of both loads in my rifle averaged 2890fps for the 185's and 2850fps for the 190's, also both grouped real well!!!
Good luck, I don't think you will be disapointed.
