Berger 168 VLD Hunting Loads in a 308

Best load for my .308 is 45 grains of varget under a Hdy. 168 BTHP. Question is: to transition to the Berger hunting bullet, any idea what would be a reasonable starting load? I figured someone has surely made the the same transition. Thanks for any help!

    700 milspec special168 berger vld hunting
    44 gr Varget
    Lapua brass, fed match primer
    Coal 2.880. My box magazine is 2.835 max. So I'm looking to upgrade the rifle to a badger dbm.
    But then again make the first shot count.
