7mm 140gr VLD?

There were a few on this board who were lucky enough to get in on the testing
of this bullet. I imagine there are others who have used them. How were your
results? How are they in accuracy compared to the 7mm 168 VLDs? How far
off/into the lands is needed for accuracy in your rifle? I would also be very
interested in hearing from anyone who has used them in the 7mm WSM
cartridge. Thanks!

    I would be interested in info on this bullet as well, thinking of using it in my custom 7MM08 which is being barreled in the next few weeks.

    I was one of the fortunate ones to try this bullet at Berger's expense.
    I found the bullet to be extremely accurate (as all Berger's tend to be)
    and to perform at the terminal end exactly as they describe it should.
    I have not shot the 168's so I cannot compare them to those, but I would expect them to be wonderful for the 7mm/08.
    I shot mine in a 7mm Rem Mag.

    Did you space them off the lands, to the lands, or into the lands for
    accuracy?
