215 bergers

I finally got a box of the impossible to find 215 bergers and wow is all I got to say about them. I am running them in my savage 300 win mag. I settled on a load of 78.5 grains of retumbo running an average of 3039fps

    3039!! That's almost exactly what I got with them in my 300 win with H-1000. And that group is awesome too. That's a killing machine right there to way out there.

    Congrats!!
