Shooting the 140 Berger hunting VLD.
I had intended to shoot the 130 JLK but the way it's shooting with the 140s I'm not even going to try anything else.

What is your barrel length and what speed do you get?

Awesome. Nice work mister.

And people keep bagging on Savage. Makes me laugh. My buddies 260 in LRP and my Savages, 110 and 116, shoot lights out too.
