The 168g VLD shoots pretty good for me out of my Rem 700 BDL, 7 RM as well with 64g RL-22, Win case, Fed 215, OAL= 3.450" Velocity is 2950fps. Groups have always been 1/2 MOA.
Tried some 180g VLD's a couple weeks ago with RL-22 and found a good load at 61g RL-22. Velocity is 2825 fps. Groups are 1/2 MOA.
Either bullet has over 1K ft lbs of energy at 1000 yards, and still going over 1600fps.
