i have recently bought a steavens modle 200 in .270 and i have a leupold vari x2 3-9 on it. After i got it on paper at 100 yards i tryed 3 different loads that i have come up with. each one shot well but one of the three shot the best. the load it seemes to like so far is 52.2 grains of imr 4350 with a 140 grain berger vld with a 210 federal primer. i am useing remington factory brass. after i shot a few groupes at 100 yards i desided to see what the gun would do at 330 yards, so i set up my target and set up at the bench. i aimed about 1 foot high of the target and fired my three shots. when i went down range to check my target i saw a group that i could not even to beave. and the drop of the bullet was just about 15 inches from my aim point. the group that i measurd was an outstandin 1.5 inch group. this group i consider to be a very good group with the conditions i was shooting in, it was pretty windy and the bench i was siting at was not a very good one but my rests that i had were solid so that was good. also i was just able to set my cross hairs about 1 foot over the target and hit it. i am also very impressed with the gun because this gun is not a target gun, its not a bench gun its just an ordanary hunting rifel with a 22 inch barrel and a factory stock,which i would like to replace but these berger vld bullets i am very impressed with and if you cant get this bullet to shoot there is either one of two problems its ither the shooter or its the gun or it could be the two.
