Re: Berger VLD
Eric Stecker of Berger bullets has said that although VLD's shoot great seated to the lands they also can be seated off and shoot just as well.
I have found that in my 300WSM the 185's shoot great at .025 off , they also will fit and cycle through the magazine even with the abrupt shoulder . I shoot with some other guys that are getting great results at about the same seating depth in multiple calibers ( .223, 22-250 and 6.5X55 Swede ).
So I would say that if you started at .020 off and stepped out ot .030 off you should find a sweet spot.
