Re: Berger 22cal. 90gr. VLD

It's a pretty safe prediction that they won't be coming apart in competition, because accuracy comes way before bullet shredding energies.
Actually, from an accuracy standpoint there never was an issue with VLD integrity.
And the original VLDs(hunting VLDs now) are as good as ever.

    I have pushed them to 3500 with no problem and great accuracy.

    That 22-6mm is based of a 6mm Remington, right? I've been wondering if the longer neck prolongs barrel life, by having the worst of the pressure vortex contained in the longer, by .1", neck.

    Zach,

    Have you done anything with these 90's? Did you ever try them with your 22-243? Let us know what you found.............I think this could be one of the best combos ever!
