    I have been loading the 190gr. Berger VLD in my .300 Weatherby Vanguard Sporter with 76gr. Reloader 22 with Federal 215M primers in Norma brass with C.O.L. of 3.560. Three shot groups are consistently running in the 5/8th inch range. Knowing that Weatherby freebore is long to begin with I would like to know of others experience with Berger in their Weatherbys and how far is it jumping? Is my rifle an anomaly or is this the norm?

    They have shot extremely well in all the Wby chamberings I have put them in. I think, if my memory is correct, in my 30-378's they were jumping .180"

    I must admit that my velocities are only 2950 in this weatherby but zeroed 3 inches high at 100 sure does a number on whitetail from the tip of your boot to 350 plus or minus yards. We don't get many truly long range shots here in Virginia.

    Sounds like a good plan to me. I feel velocity is often over-rated. Dead animals make a believer our of me, not number on a chronograph or a computer screen.

    would this "sweet spot" change when changing powders? or will it always be at that length? this should carry over to all bullets right? this sounds very interesting, if this works out then i will have to start over on all my rifles.
