I'm working on one now with h4350 federal 215m primers and win brass. I'm interested in others findings and I won't have data for a week or so

Re: 190 gr Berger Hunting VLD for .300WSM

My best load in my Wsm is the 190 hunting vld. .012 off the lands which in my rifle gives an coal 2.904", 215m primer, winchester brass, 62.5 grains of H4350 from my 24" barrel gives 2875 fps with ridiculously low ES and is very mild but that is where the groups became single holes. If I use federal brass I drop the the powder charge to 62.0 and get exactly the same performance. I got real lucky with my tikka and the VLD bullets as it was the easiest load tuning I have ever done. Hope yours go as well, Good luck.

Re: 190 gr Berger Hunting VLD for .300WSM

Load data was generated using Quick Load a 26 inch barrel a COAL (cartridge over all length) of 2.860 inches and your COAL and velocity could be a little different.
AS WITH ALL RELOADING APPROACH THE MAXIMUM LOADS WITH CAUTION AS ALL RIFLES AND RELOADING TECHNIQUES WILL BE DIFFERENT. If YOU CHANGE ANY OF YOUR COMPONENTS; THIS INCLUDES DIFFERENT POWDER LOT NUMBERS; YOU MUST REFIGURE YOUR LOADS BY STARTING WITH THE MINIMUM LOAD.
If we can be of any additional help feel free to contact us.
Thanks for your interest and have a great day.

The load data he sent me was in chart form. The chart did not transpose into the email/forum very well. I can forward the email Walt sent me if you would like for me to.

Re: 190 gr Berger Hunting VLD for .300WSM

I know this is a little late but I just ran across this topic. I have a 300wsm win.model 70 coyote with the SS bull barrel (26") and I have had the best performance out of 60.0 grains IMR 4350 215M primers and win brass trimmed to 2.090 and seated to an overall OJIVE measurement of 2.2225". Which is .0005 in the lands chrono'd at 2834.
Will drive tacks out to 600 which is the max I can shoot in se ga.
