300 WSM and 210gr VLD Bergers

Does anyone have a good load for a 300 WSM shooting 210gr Berger Hunting VLDs.
I sent an email off to Walt. Haven't heard from him yet.
Thanks

These are a couple good ones that you'll have to work up to. My gun loves the 210 and 230 with 7828ssc. Don't run out and load these up, they may be hot in your gun. These far exceed Berger's extremely conservative loads with 7828 for both of these bullets.

210 Berger .631 G1 BC
67.5 grains of IMR7828ssc
CCI 200 primer
Norma brass
touching the lands.
2825-2850 fps depending on atmospheric conditions.

230 Berger tactical OTM .719 G1 BC
65.4 grains of 7828ssc
CCI 200
Norma Brass
.005 off lands
2690-2705 fps depending on atmospheric conditions.

Here is Berger's data. Their H4831sc loads are dead on. 65.0 grains of H4831sc is also a good load with the 210 in my gun at right around 2770 fps.

Their 7828ssc loads are mild. I extrapolated mostly from Hodgdon and barnes data to work my loads up to maximum.

210 Grain H4350 55.5 2542 58.5 2673 94.5%
210 Grain RE-19 57.0 2572 60.0 2700 99.0%
210 Grain NORMA MRP 60.0 2613 62.8 2737 99.3%
210 Grain VIHT N560 60.5 2636 63.8 2772 99.3%
210 Grain WIN WXR 59.5 2586 62.8 2730 99.8%
210 Grain IMR 7828SSC 59.5 2595 62.5 2732 99.3%
210 Grain AA XMR 4350 54.0 2560 56.8 2678 92.7%
210 Grain H4831SC 61.5 2614 65.0 2772 102.7%
210 Grain Ramshot Hunter 56.5 2586 59.6 2713 91.3%
210 Grain IMR 4350 52.5 2530 55.5 2658 91.6%
210 Grain RE-22 58.5 2555 61.6 2691 99.3%
210 GrainAA MAGPRO 63.0 2558 66.5 2717 102.4%
