168gr VLD Hunting 300WM Recipes

I've already searched and haven't really found anything for the 168gr Berger VLD Hunting bullet and the 300WM. Anyone have a good recipe with rifle specs?

Thanks,

Scott

Re: 168gr VLD Hunting 300WM Recipes

I cannot remember the load but 7828 gave me good results when shooting a 168gn VLD.may have been around 73gn if I am right.sold the rifel that I shoot this load out of.so remembering the load is hard.

sorry for the little help.

Re: 168gr VLD Hunting 300WM Recipes

I have a 168 VLD 300Win Mag load that runs 3100 fps out of a 24" barrelled Savage 116. The load is 76.5 gr of RL22 with bullet touching rifiling. I use Remington brass that is neck turned and Fed 215GM Mag primers. If I remember correctly the ES was around 20 fps. Don't have COAL measurement with me right now. The load produces .5 to .75 MOA accuracy and seems to get better the farther I shoot. I need to work up a load with Hodgdon Extreme powder and 190VLD's, this will be much better ballistically.

Re: 168gr VLD Hunting 300WM Recipes

I'd shoot the 190gr VLD's but we don't have any locally and I have a very short window to find a load for my hunt......thus the 168gr's because they are available.

What risks do you take shootin' a 300WM at around 3150-3200 fps?
