I did a little load development for 210 Bergers in my Sako Finnlight 300 WSM. With 65.5 gr of RL17 I was able to push them to about 2935 (24 3/8" bbl). The Bergers were seated to the lans. The promers showed very slight cartering but nO stiff bolt or any other pressure signs. I dont have their COAL recorded but the COAL for some HAT 180's I loaded in that rifle was 3.117, load about .050 off the lans and those bullets were of a similar shape and length as the Bergers. My rifle does have quite a long throat.
