This is why I like this site. Every day I learn something new. While reading this thread, I had a light bulb moment. A few years ago I couldn't get Berger VLD's to group in my .257 Wby @ 100 Yds as well as Barnes and Sierra's. I gave up on using them, and settled on the Barnes. Now I will have to go back and re-shoot them at a farther distance to see if the group size shrinks (in moa) at a further distance. Also, since I will be hunting at 9,000 ft, and I sight in @ 780 ft. I will try Retumbo rather than RL-22.

Thanks guys!
