Guys I am about to switch from 257 Weatherby mag to 7mm WSM. I am running a Lilja #7 on my 257 but will be running a Shilen straight #7 HV. Its on a Weatherby mkV action sitting in a Micky A5 topped with a NF NXS 5.5-22x56. It did well for me in Alaska as I shot my 257 out to 2300 yards!!! That is no lie either. I will have pics up soon as soon as my dad emails them to me. Anyways, we are going to Africa next year and I wanted something with a little more punch than that of my 257 wby but wasnt too overkill.
What I need help with is getting a load started for the 168 gr Berger VLD. I love Berger bullets and have stopped buying any other brand all together. If any of you guys are running this setup please give me the dimensions of the load, rifle, altitude, and temp that you chronographed the load at.
Thanks a bunch guys,
