The load I mentioned is with 168 Bergers. I have two stands down here in
Louisana that I can shoot 700 plus yards. Other stands are closer.
Might use a partiton or game king for short stuff! Any other ideas are welcome!

We use the 180 Berger Hunting VLD for everything from 50 yards to 1000 plus.

Didn't know how a Berger would work up close. Wouldn't hurt to try, though!
Havn't started on my 7/300 yet, so I'm still shooting my 7mm rem mag.
Gonna get with my smith after the weekend and start!

3100 at 73 gr but just got some Norma brass to try. I figure it will be a bit faster as i has more room in the case like the WW we got 3175 from a 28 1/2 " tube.

Great looking rifle! Numbers not bad either! Very impressive! Looks like you have
A shooter there. Again, I'm just waiting on my smith to get back in
town after a long weekend. Broz, when you get that thing fine tuned give

The load for the RWS brass is done. We will experiment with the Norma brass later on. For now the rifle is shooting very consistant .4 moa groups to 200. This week I will be confirmng drops to 1000. I will report in with some long range groups. Interesting thing, best seating depth for the 180 VLD's ended up at .090" off the lands. I worked it out like Erics Stecker's method suggested. He was spot on and she opened back up at 130 off the lands. Very noticable sweet spot. Don't believe everything you read about seating VLD's close. Two of these rifle are solid 1/2 moa or better and one is .115" and this one is .090" off the lands.
