Interesting... I loaded some 185 grn VLD hunting as well... using the same powder. A couple differences though... I only used 59.1 grn of H4350 with winchester magnum primers and compressed them to 2.880" .
At the range, I managed to get four of five shots touching each other @ 100 yds (I goofed up on the flyer). Stretching it out to 200 yds, I managed to get five of five all within .75" .
Not too sure if any of this is relevant, but it almost says that less can be more... at times.
Additional information: Shot with ambient temperature of 15c at 927 ft above sea level. Dead calm wind conditions.
