I don't think the 300 gr VLD is available yet. If they are I have missed them. But we have taken many elk with the .338 / 300 gr OTM's with great results from 200 yards to well past 1000.
The new 300 gr Elite Hunter is now also available and one you should also consider.
For load work up in the Edge, I would start with 88 gr. of H-1000 over a CCI 250 and work up toward 92 gr watching for pressure and accuracy as you approach 90 to 91 gr. or so. Seating needs to be fine tuned in your rifle but I would start about -.020" off the lans.
