190 Bergers, 300WM

Anyone have a good load using 190 grain Berger VLDs in a 300 WM? I plan to try some in my rifle if I can ever get them!

Thanks

    Thanks for the info. What velocity did you get from this load? What barrel length do you have?

    7mmSendaro,
    I tried some back in February in my Savage 112BVSS with RL25 and didn't get great results. I am going to re-visit the 190's with RL22, IMR7828 and possibly a few faster powders. I was also using WLRM primers that day and temp was 40deg.
    I tried from 75.0gn to 77.5 in 1/2gn increments:
    75.0 - 2932fps @ 1.1705"
    75.5 - 2971fps @ .893"
    76.0 - 2991fps @ 1.342"
    76.5 - 3021fps @ .510"
    77.0 - 3070fps @ 1.2135"
    77.5 - 3073fps @ 2.011"

    I tried 76.5gn again, both with WLRM and R9.5M primers and velocity was pretty much the same (W:3053fps, R:3012fps) but accuracy was 2.441" for WLRM and 1.051" for R9.5M primers.
    I know your rifle will be totally different for velocity and accuracy, but it gives you somewhat of a range as to what you should expect. Hope this helps. JohnnyK.
