Re: berger vld hunting 6mm 115 gr.

I have a 240 Gibbs that drives the 115's at just under 3250 in a 8 twist barrel and the shoot great. If you think your velocity will be over 3250 try a box of Bergers "target" 115's, Berger part #24430, they have a thicker jacket and should hold together. Berger says they do not recomend them for hunting but the jackets are not as tough as the Sierra jackets and they work fine in a hunting situation.

You could always try the 115 DTAC.. Has a really high BC and is a very popular choice among Long Range shooters.

Thank you.
Hopefully your pac-nor 1-8"twist barrel is not a 3 groove or you wont be using the 105gr Bergers for very many shots either, you will end up using a 107gr SMK or the 115gr DTAC.
One of my friends also had this problem but can still shoot the Berger 95gr VLD because of the shorter bearing surface.

Thanks gentlemen,

I just received the 115 gr bergers in the mail today. Haven't loaded any, but will this week. I hope I can work up an accurate load quick. Don't want to burn the barrel out to fast. This is a mule deer hunting rifle hopefully will shoot 40 - 60 rounds per year. At that rate should last about 10 years. (I hope)

Good job on your new wildcat. I just did the samr thing with a 25 caliber of the 270 wsm. Have my own reamer and call it the 25 Bobcat. You should get some super sonic velocities, im getting 3650 out of my 25 with a 100 grain bullet. Reloader 22 works well for me.

You should get more then that...I'm at 400 in two years out of my 6-284 shooting nothing but berger 115 vld's and it still looks and shoots excellent.

Take care of your barrrel don't get it hot and keep her clean.
