I suggest shooting some 1000 or 1200 yard groups first to see what you think.

Thanks, I just picked up about 70 of the 210 LRAB's and found that they are exceptionally accurate in my rifle using the exact same load that I use with the 210 Bergers. One ragged 5 shot hole at 300 yards. Velocity is identical and POI is 1MOA higher, windage identical. Im anxiouse to see how they do at long range. Now the big challenge is trying to find some more. I have had little success finding them.

I will assume your zero will be higher and that is why they are higher at 300. It could be a velocity increase from more pressure. But probably just a point of impact change.

Yes, take them to 1200 and see what you got. I hope they hold to your standards there. These longer distances are the best place to check that BC too. But you will need to confirm an accurate MV and zero first.

After some load development to suit the particular rifle, this bullet shot well, I was just unhappy to find such an inaccurate advertisement.
My bad. I misread your post. I can honestly say I could be of no help here. Good luck

Please let us know your results. I recently picked a couple hundred 7mm 175s to see what they'll do in my 7RM. The general consensus is that the loads are similar if not exactly the same as the corresponding Berger loads.
