Berger VLD's Help!!!!

I am looking for any advise out there. I have been working on develpment of a load for my model 70 300 wsm. I have been trying to get the Berger 168 Grain VLD to shoot but with little success.

I also have a model 70 in 25 wssm and was trying to get the 115 Grain VLD to shot but gave up, any pointer would be appreciated.

What have you tried? What loads have you worked up? What have been your results? What's your OAL?

My 7mmWSM likes the Bergers and JLK's touching "into" the lands. What are the twist rates of your two rifles?

Both rifles are 1 in 10 twist. I have built many loads with RL19 an IMR 4350. My OAL's have ranged from 2.800 to 2.860.

I have had nothing tighter than an inch and a half at 100 yards.
