I did get a 3025 fps average load with 71.5 grains .30 jump but this load is all over the place about 2.5 inch groups

    Cool...I'll have to look into it. I'm thinking about rebarreling my A-Bolt II 7Mag with a Sendero contour heavy barrel 1:9 twist. It currently has sporter barrel 1:9.5 twist with BOSS system, and as much as I like the BOSS system, I really hate it when it gets loose, and the fact that you're pretty much deaf for a week after you shoot a deer... Plus, I just want a heavier barrel on it to add for more long-range potential.

    I'm getting 3026 fps with 69.6 gr's of H1000, just touching the lands with the 168 VLD's. I'm also using the WLRM primers. I know my chrony is giving me a pretty acurate reading, because Bergers ballistic calculator had me right on with my drop. My first attempt at 600 yards was a perfect hit on a 6" round steel target. I was finally able to find a 8lb tub of H1000 too, so I'm in business for at least another 800 rounds .

    All of that for $250??? Holy crap... That's a deal.

    I have 1 box of the VLD-H 168's, but bought a box of VLD-T's to shoot at the range. I hope my local store gets some more stuff in soon. I'm tired of worrying about running out of Varget, H1000, and VLD's....
