I would be intersted in the info Walt provided if you wouldn't mind forwarding it along. I just had LSR build me a new 300RUM and I've got about 6 boxes of bullets ready to load, including a box of the Berger 210 VLD's.

Fortunately, I also have some of the Federal Premium brass that was produced in special runs a few years ago. This is really nice brass.

Your RUM should be pushing the bullet about the same as my 300 Wby Mag, I'd guess. The BC on the 168 VLD is higher than most 30 cal 180 gr. bullets. Anyhow, I am using IMR 7828 and 215 primers.... The gun is shooting them well. Good luck.

    CnS
    CnS, I also love the 168 VLD. Can you tell us what kind of speed you are getting with 7828? Thanks.

    According to the Berger info that CNS just forwarded to me, you shoud get 3,371 ft/sec from the 168 VLD with a max load of 92.7gr of IMR7828SSC. That is in the 300 RUM you're asking about; correct?

    Considering this is what the thread is about, why not just post the Berger data on this thread ?

    It's a table within an email so I'm not sure how well it would work. He gave me data from plenty of powders... Let me see what i can do.

    It's not pretty, but it's legible... I think.




    These values are all computed standard metro (0 elevation, 59 degrees, 78% humidity) with a 26" barrel using Quick Load. Your values may be higher. If you still would rather have it emailed just send me a PM.
