gerryb, in your 7mm calibers, try the Berger 168 gr Classic Hunter bullets (hybrid). In my 7WSM I was having difficulty getting consistency with the VLDs, tried the hybrids, problem solved. On 3 consecutive trips to the range, getting less than 1/2moa groups with it. Easiest load workup I have ever done. And, the BC of the hybrids is only very slightly less than the VLDs.
