Youngtrout,
Seemed kinda low to me too, but there it is. One additional bit of info is that Berger recommends a 1:8 twist or faster barrel for the 130 VLD.

28" 1 to 8 twist

Barrel is married to the action now.

Opened the stock to handle the 1 1/4 barrel

Bedding the action this week.

will take some pics when It's finished.

Looking at the Berger manual last night, I saw that I could use the same 140gr Match VLD Hunting that I will be loading for the 260 Rem. with my 6.5 Grendel.
Lost of fun things to consider.

Re: 260 Rem Load Recipeies?

Another interesting thing in the Berger reloading manual is that in the usual write up by the various authors about each cartridge there is a bolded paragraph stating the Muzzle velocity increase or decrease per inch of barrel. For the 260 it reads:

Muzzle velocity will increase (or decrease) by approximately 26 fps per inch from a standard 24" barrel.

So, if you have a 28 inch barrel you can expect an increase of approximately 104 fps, which would take the max printed velocity of 2736 to 2840. Not bad at all.
