Berger VLD .308 Load Data

Can anyone share the Berger .308 load data out of their Berger manual?

Like to see the charts for:

155 hybrid
168 Hunting VLD
175 Hunting VLD

Thank you!

Re: Berger VLD .308 Load Data

Berger 168 VLD, Nosler Custom Comp 168 & 175.....44.0gr of Varget is what I use. That seems to be the universal load for heavy barreled .308's shooting 168 & 175gr pills. It hasn't failed me yet.

If you wanna have some real fun, you should try the Berger 210 VLD's with 39.1gr of Varget if you have the right twist rate (1:10 or 1:11.25"). Load at your own risk, that is Berger's max recommended load for the 210's in the .308. When using a load with pressures like this, make sure you use good brass like Lapua or Hornady Match brass.
