300 Mag and 210 bergers

Hey guys, just picked up some 210berger VLD's yesterday and I have never loaded these before. I did a search on here but didnt see a whole lot about this load. Any one have a good load for this combo? Specifically with Re-22, because that's what I have right now.

I think i will start by seating them .01 off the lands and see how that does. Also Berger sent me some load info and the max charge they say with re-22 is 71.1 gr. but seems like other loads ive seen load a bit more. Is Berger just being conservative?

Thanks guys!

    300 RUM or 300 Win??

    If 300 RUM, I use H1000, 91.6 grains with the 210VLD's. The load is, well, REAL nice.

    Not sure about rel 22 but I've been using H1000. Here is my load for my Rem 700 P in 300 Win Mag. A little hot but safe in my rifle. And let me say it shoots!

    80gr H1000
    CCI 250 primers
    COL 3.612"

    Nice group, but that load would freeze the bolt in many of the 300 wins I load for with 210 Bergers. I just finished a Senaro that had a hard bolt lift at 77 gr of H-1000 so I backed it off to 75.

    My point is, every rifle is different and I would work up from 72 or 74 grains of H-1000 with 210's in a 300.
