Hey Boyd

What kind of velocity are you getting out your 300WSM using the 210VLD, Whats your barrel lenght and twist. Also have you ever shot the 190VLD? Have you shot any deer with these yet.

Re: Hey Boyd

My accuracy load is 2812fps in an 11 twist barrel.28.5 inchs long......My accuracy load in a 35 inch 9 twist barrel is at 2890fps......With the 210's....Never shot the 190's....Never shot a deer with them...But people I've talked to that have.Say they work very well

Re: Hey Boyd

Boyd, do you think a 10 twist 24" barrel would handle the 190VLD's

Re: Hey Boyd

Where can I get any loading data for the 300WSM using the Bergers. Also are you getting better accuracy when touching the lands or not?
