300 wm loads for berger185 hunting vld


I just received 185 gr berger hunting VLD's for my 300 wm.

Can anyone share their pet loads with me? I've had great success with H1000 and would like to stay with Hodgdon Extreme powders.

What is your prefered jump to the lands?

Thanks,

Re: 300 wm loads for berger185 hunting vld

I am currently doing load development with these bullets for my 300win Remington Sendero. Using H-1000 powder - started at 75 grains and worked my way up. Finally settled on 79 grains. I started with the bullets .03 off the lands. Five shots were just over .27. I use remington brass and CCI 250 mag primers. I just loaded 5 rounds each of 4 different seating depths runnig to within .01 of the lands. Hope to get out tomorrow and give them a try.

Cool handle ICANHITHIMMAN!,

I'm going to do a ladder test upping the grains .3 grains at a time to find my max. Do you know where the starting load is? Can you readily find CCI BR2 primers? I haven't seen them up in my neck of the woods. I'm currently firing Winchester Lg Rifle Magnum with 80.0 grs. of H1000 and TSX 165's. Man, I thought I was shooting a hot load, I guess not now! I've shot up to 82.3 grs. max with that load. How do Winchester primers work in your gun. What rifle are you shooting and what is the barrel length?

You're seating depth test Seems right on. The TSX likes .065 - .090 for me.
