Thanks for sharing you pictures.
Thanks for the comments guys. I have put a lot of work and research into this rifle, it is nice it has paid off.

As for the load all the standard warnings apply, all rifles are different, reduce and work your way up, etc, etc. I use 80.0 of 7828 with 215 primers. The bullet is just off the lands .010-.020. In my rifle this is a very hot load. When the temps get above 90* it starts beating the brass up pretty bad. I don't think the load will be that hot in other 300 Wby's, but because I have a turn neck chamber it seems to be more pressure sensitive. I'll bet other 300 Wby's could get over 3000 fps with these bullets, but they may be more accurate at just under.

Re: This is why I shoot Berger bullets

Not trying to change thread but I have a 30-378Wby and will be reloading the 210 bergers and just had a new barrel put on and its a lilja 30" stainless fluted put on and the just about everything you can have done to the action stock and anything else you can think of to make it shoot more accurate.
What type of powder and what grains do you think I should start with?

With the factory tube I was shooting 180gr Barnes X with 104gr of RL 25 and accuracy and velocity was great

I also have a 30-378. I do not plan on shooting the 210 Bergers in this rifle though. I keep hoping they will get the 230 gr. Bergers to market that have been talked about.

I have just started to get my 30-378 to the range and I am using H50BMG with 220 Hat's and 240 SMK's. Starting at around 105 grs.

Re: This is why I shoot Berger bullets

Do your groups open up on the small calibers as well or only your big guns. That is some impressive shooting. The reason i ask is my goal is to shoot to 1000yds, right now i i use a free grip style so my gun jumps each time on the bipod. My 100 yds groups are between 3/8 and 1/2 so dont know how it will affect groups at 1000yds. Im impressed that you take the time to label and paste your shoots. I also am using berger vlds
