    How do we know this will not be a jammed load? In a 7mm Sendero with a 168 it sure could be. I still have not heard what the rifle is.

    The 7 mag is stiller action and I am sure it can be loaded out the 7 wsm is ga precision
    The stw is Ed brown with custom barrel and the 280 AI is stiller action custom rifle.

    I would start -.030 or .-040" off the lans and then follow the suggested procedure from Berger. I did have one in 7-300 win that was so so until I got to .-100 off the lans and it tighten right up to a 1 hole group. This was with 180 VLD's

    Good point Jeff. I was assuming by his post that he could not get to .010 off because of the mag restrictions and that also tells me he knows the seating depth at the lands.

    I am happy to see that you can get accuracy away from the lands it just seems like most say they are touching or even jammed which I really did not want to do. I have not shot the bergers in Africa hurt but would like to try them on my next few hunts.

I want to shoot some animals with the VLD I just can't get the accuracy
    Hi gerry, the VLD's are very tempremental little things. They can either like to be jammed of have a big jump.
    Have a look at the following link, within the link download the berger tuning tips page.
    Its a very interesting read & may solve your issue.
