Range report for new .277" Berger VLD, 270 WSM

Took the Tikka out Saturday to try some different loads, one of them being the new Bergers in 150 grain. My recipe was 56.5 grains IMR 4350, Remington case, Fed 215 primer and bullet was set .005" off the lands. Referring to the groups on bottom left of both targets in the pics. First picture was the first group I had shot with these. Second picture was after I got settled down and concentrated real hard. Yes, that second pic is a three shot group, the third shot went throught the same hole as the first shot, which is the hole to the left. I am pleased.

My Tikka T3 in 270 WSM is pretty much stock, lighter trigger spring, raised cheek piece, muzzle brake and broke the barrel in properly 2 weeks ago.

How is the 270 shooting, have you tried any more Burgers? I have Sako 270 WSM and I am going to buy some 140 & if they shoot well, will hunt whitetail deer with them

You are right, they aren't listed on their web page. Just give them a call directly and talk to Andrea at 714-447-5456. They were very nice and helpful, I only bought one box so you don't have to buy in bulk to get them from the manufacturer. Good luck, you will love them.
