Berger VLD

Has anyone shot VLD's in a Weatherby?
Berger suggest the VLD's being seated on the lands.
I wouldn't think that would be wise with WBY's freebore?

Re: Berger VLD

I shoot the 210's in 2 different 30-378's one is a stock accumark, the other has a 30" HS barrel with free bore. I also shoot the 190's in my 300 with a stock accumark barrel. Seat them as long as your mag box will allow. They shoot great in my rifles.

Re: Berger VLD

tonypro,

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.

Mike
