Re: BERGER VLD's and loading issues
I read Eric Steker's article a while back, and had to re-read it again. It is excellent and right on the mark. I shoot VLD's only in competition for the very reason he suggests - in general, they shoot best when jammed into the rifling and this is not recommended in a hunting rifle or any box magazine rifle. VLD's can be very tricky. Some rifles like them, others just do not. I use them in three different calibers, but put in a lot of range time to get them down to half MOA. If you have the time and equipment to do this, by all means go for it. If you are trying for utmost accuracy in a hunting rifle, either try the Berger hunting VLD's or go to some other non-VLD bullet.
