Can a Berger 105 gr VLD be loaded to standard Rem BDL box length in a 243 Win and still allow for seating it to maximum accuracy? Or will it be too long to feed correctly? What about the 115 gr VLD? Can anyone shed some light on chamber dimension considerations?
Rack- individual chambers vary . a hornady oal compartor will tell you cheaply. the probabilty that your 700 will stabilize either one of those is very very low. a 105 amax maybe. if you have an 8 twist krieger on there then you are good to go with the 105 bergers.
I have a brand new remington 700 action with BDL bottom metal. I haven't purchased the barrel yet although the Krieger you mentioned is at the top of my list. I'm interested in 243 Win and Berger VLD Hunting bullets. So this thread is to help me learn which way to go.
Thanks for the response.
