Bryan- The 190 VLD's are awesome. I found a pet load for IMR-4350 and the 190 VLD (now I get to do the same drill with less of faster powders) that yielded a pair of bullet holes (round ones) touching at 100 yards (the test that I was doing required only two rounds per load to identify the better charge weight for a specific powder. I realize that 2 shots does not guarantee that this is a "perfect load" however the test results were conclusive enough for me to move from powder / charge selection to seating depth adjustments).
After shooting that group I dialed the scope up a little and shot a nice 3/4" group at 200 yards. My shooting at 300 yards wasn't as good as I would like but I attribute that to poor cheek weld to the stock (parts are coming to fix that). The bullets were strung almost perfectly horizontal about an inch and a quarter either side of the center (first shot) hole. All in all I'm very pleased with the results of the test and the 190 VLD. Next test- RL-15.
