Looks interesting. Let us know how it works out.

    I've played with the heavies before, but never with any amount of success. My one rifle had the wrong twist, and the other rifle's barrel is too short to really get any decent velocity. Not to mention it could use a new stock.

    Yeah, my 5R should eat them up.....Perfect combo for the heavies....5R rifling, 11.25" twist, and a 24" barrel. Oughtta be perfect for those bullets, in theory. It loves the 168's and 175's.

    I'll be heading to the range in a little while (they don't open till 1 on Sundays), so I will post my findings.

    Ok......First off, I'd like to appologize for not getting pics, but the bottom was fixing to fall out of the sky right as the day ended.

    Now, on to the 210 Berger VLD's......with them seated @ 3.060", with 39.1gr of Varget, and Fed 210 primers, i was shooting 1/2-3/4" 3-shot groups once you subtract the bullet width. I'd say the ole 5R loves them. I will definitely be buying a box of them this week to load up more of them.

    I will get pics next time.

    Tank if you have an 11"-12" twist, you should give it a try. I think I am going to make it one of my pet loads.
