    I had a little trouble with them at first in my 300Rum. Was just about ready to give up and decided to load what was recommended at 3.600 oacl. Loaded 3 up with 97grs. of H-1000. Cut a ragged hole group at 300yds going 3400fps.

    I have the luxury of shooting hogs just about anytime I want to for bullet performance. Infact this weekend I popped 7 with both the 270AM and the 300Rum. It's pretty cool to have 1 rifle set up at one end of the barn and another at the other end.

    The first hog was a big boar I shot through the shoulder with the 200 Accubond. It did ok, but not that impressed. The second was a little piglet about the size of a cotton tail with the 185 VLD which pretty much blowed him into. And the rest was with the 270Allen Mag.

    The 185 VLD at 3.600oacl in my rifle has a jump of 175K.

    Your probably having issues due to the freebore in the Weatherby chamber , most of the time the VLD style buulets like to seated very close or into the lands
