Re: Berger vld load troubles
I have not used vld in 243, but shoot lots of them in other calibers. As much as I love them, I've learned not all rifles will shoot them, there may be another option. I am curious about one aspect of your load you didn't mention, or I didn't see, and that is runout. Do you check it? Some seating dies are much better than others for producing straight loads. I use the hornady tool that not only checks runout, but also allows you to straighten. That can certainly help with flyers. Your es may be an issue, but I find it to be pretty minor with high velocity rounds under 300 yards.
