Re: 264 win mag and 140 gr VLD

My load is 68 grains of Retumbo, .010 off the lands, WW case, Fed 215M primer. This gives me 3166 fps out of my Rem CDL, and shoots under an inch at 100 yards, if I do my part.

Ramshot Magnum, H1000, US869, Retumbo, all work well. 215M or 215 primer.

69 gr. of h1000 .006 into the lands gets about 3220 fps and 1/4"

I have not tried the 140 VLD but the 130 Accubond and 66.5 grs Retumbo really shots in my rifle. 27 3/4" barrel 3350 fps.
