    The only thing I have found finicky with
    Bergers is that they usually need to be seated on or into the lands to shoot their best. Some shoot them with .010 -.050 jump but I have never been able to do that with my rifles. I set them to just touch the lands when chambered.

    Any decent load data on the bergers in the 165/168's or maybe even the 150's

    300 Win Mag

    I would recomend you try Swift Sciroccos, especially the 180s. The shoot great and hold their weight. I shoot them in my .243, .308, 30-06, and 300Win Mag. They are a tangent Ogive and like a jump, polymer tip, and VLD boattail, tapered,and bonded jacket.

    Blacktail. I've used the Scirroco in a 280 Rem and the 180's in the 300 WM. Only shot one Bull, but at 542 yds and made a four pointer out of him. He was on his back and all four were pointing straight up! I love that bullet in the 300. I have a direct number to one of Swifts Techs, PM me if you need it.
