76-78 grs. of H1000 and CC250's under the 210 Berger hunting VLD seated as close to the lands as possible. Work up carefully, I've had a rifle show pressure as low as 77grs. Good Luck!

I would start a bit lower than 76gr. Some rifles will see preasure at 75 gr. I would start at 74 and work up to 76 at .010 off the lands. I am sure you will find a great load in there.

I just went through this process and ended up with two very accurate loads using my 24" Rem Milspec. Using Berger 210 Hunting VLD's loaded .010" off the lands, Norma brass, Fed 215 primers, neck sized to .335" with Redding bushing dye.

75.5 gr H1000, 2750 FPS
79 gr Retumbo 2855 FPS

Both loads give sub .5MOA, ES under 12FPS. No pressure signs. I'd start a couple of grains lower and work up in .5 gr increments.
