    Re: 300 win mag with 210 Vld

    I just started working on loads using the 210 VLD's with H1000 with Norma brass and 215 primers. Out of my Rem Milpecs 24" barrel I'm running 2700 FPS and planning on working up my charge. I'm .010" off the lands. Since I was breaking in my barrel I kept the charge light. I would like to see 2800-2850. I will say that the the rifle is shooting .2-.3 MOA at 200 yards with SD around 10. I'm hoping this holds as I work on boosting the velocity. Any viewpoints on the Norma brass? I got hold of 200 pieces. It's all I could put my hands on during this supply drought. It's not cheap, but so far I like it.

    The Norma Brass is comparable in volume to Lapua, WW, RP and Graf. I feel you will end up is the 77 gr area depending on your lot of H-1000 and you should see 2800 plus depending on altitude from your 24" tube. The accuracy should also be good there and I like your starting depth.


    If you feel you are just a tiny bit hot, once you get there on the charge but have good accuracy, try backing off .010" at a time and see if pressure drops a little at .020 to .030" off the lands.

    What loads have you tried with the h1000. I was trying with rws brass and it appears I am to hot. I have no signs but I am going to try a little less powder. I have seen some loads at 80 grains in Winchester brass but those may be over pressure also. I don't care if I am a little lower in speed but I don't want to get so slow that I am 300 h&h velocities.berger book has max close to 76 grains and I have found all of their loads very mild and no where near the velocity that they quote
