I'm new to the berger family

I've got a Winchester model 70 in a coyote all stock and have reloaded with 168 VLD's with 68 grains of imr H1000, nickel brass and cci mag primers. and I do not have the Berger reloading manual yet, the best I have figured out the speed is around 2925?. Is the FPS close? I will be ordering a manual after x-mas but with 4 kids money is tight this time of the year..... any help will be great. thanks guys

    Berger has the max load of 68.1gr H1000 @ 2912fps for the 7mm WSM. They tested with a 24 inch barrel and a COAL of 2.860 You understand that is just approximate? In your rifle it could be quite different.
