If your shooting those 168 VLDs out of a 111 LRH please post your load. I also have a LRH in 7 Rem Mag and plan to load up 168 Berger VLDs for it when I get home.

Re: Savage 111 Long Range Hunter 7mm

Skyking, so you're saying you can push the 180 gr burger faster in the wsm case than you can 162 amax in the rem mag case? Now I don't have any specific experience but this just doesn't seem accurate? In your savage rem Mac example you claim 3200 with the 168 gr burger, so you are scewing the numbers a little bit. What I get with my ballistic program is the 162 gr Amax at 3200 fps is -18.7 MOA and 1107 lbs of energy and 1756 dos at 1000. The bergers are still better but not by that much. Running your Berger info for a 180 gr Berger at 2975 at 1012 yards I get 21.6 MOA drop 1110 ft lbs of energy and velocity of 1666. Why are our numbers so different? This is not an attack I'm just wondering why my ballistic program is so different. I'm using bullet flight FTE military version
