.280 AI loads with 168 Berger VLD???

I have a .280 AI with 25" Lilja 1/9" twist barrel. I've been shooting the 140 NBTs for a while now but I'd like to spend a little time launching the 168 Bergers at critters. I was thinking somewhere along the lines of 58-60 grains RE-25 in front of a WLR Mag. primer should yield about 2900 fps. That sound about right? Anyone got any pet .280AI loads they'd like to share?

    Email Walt and he will help you out... he can give you load data, etc. for your rifle.

    Great guy and he will email back fairly promptly.
