Re: Berger VLD .308 Load Data

I've found the 168 VLD's to be extremely accurate over 45.5 grains of varget in Lapua brass with a CCI BR-2 primer. This load produced 1/2 MOA groups out of my rifle, remember to work up from reduced loads and check for signs of high pressure. The hodgdon book and website list 46 grains of varget as the max, I tried it and groups opened up a little bit.

What gun? This is about a mirror image of my current load. I found sweet spot at 44 grains. mine are built 2.89 OAL for my Rem 5R .

Had real good grouping at 44 gr, bumped up to 45 for some more speed. No pressure signs yet.
