Berger 270 150 VLD

Hi you guys, Berger has had their new bullets for the 270's out for a few months now. Have any of you had time to develope a favorite load? I'm working on a Rem 700, 270 WSM. So far I haven't had much success. Nothing better than 1" groups. My OAL is 2.80 and I think I can go out to 2.82 without any trouble. The powders I have used so far are, RE 22, Retumbo and Ram Shot Mag. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

You need to seat them into the lands. Also your power choices(Retumbo in particular) Are a little slow IMO for that bullet. I would try something a little faster(h4831sc would be a good one).

So far I tried IMR7828 SSC powder Winchester cases and WLRM primer. Seated into the lands. 62.0grs. produced 0.75" five shot group. I haven't chronographed it yet.

I am shooting Berger 150 gr vld's, remington brass, remington mag primers, 56.5 gr of H4350. Average fps around 2900.
Total case length 2.745. The bullet needs to be touching the rifling.

***Edited the total case length for me is 2.845***

If you want shoot me a PM with your email address and I can send you an Excel file with all the stuff I have so far...... From what I've seen on the books Retumbo will work well with the 150. I have 10 loaded but have not had the time to shoot them through the chrono to see if the stats that Hodgdon put out are accurate. I've had good luck with them being pretty close to what's on their site.

H 1000 worked best in my rifle. It is a 700 SPS with the light barrel and tupperware stock. It shoots about 1 inch at 200 yds.
