Re: VLD seating depth poll
Best performance at 350 yds or more. None group well at 100 to 200yd.
7mm Rem Mag, Berger 168 VLD, .025" off the lands. All measured at the ogive w/ Hornady bullet comparator. Best groups are 1/4 MOA.
7mm Rem Mag, Berger 180 VLD, .005 off the lands... Any more leade and the target looks like buckshot. But at .005 or less shoots the best groups of all mentioned here.
7mm Rem Mag, Berger 140 VLD, .020 off the lands... Shoots 1/4 MOA but its not easy. This rifle likes the heavy bullets.
30-06, Factory barrel, Berger 168 VLD, .150 off the lands. Doesn't like to be any closer (Not accurate and pressure signs) and I'm going to try .170 and .200 later this summer.
