    I was wondering if any one has found a sweet spot for the 7 mm 168 Bergers. I shoot a 6.5X284 with the 140 VLDS and the known sweet spot is roughly 2950-3050. Just wondering if there is a known one for the 168's.

    In my 7mm WSM the 2950fps range is my accuracy node in a 26" barrel with the 168 bergers.
    I am using H1000

    I run the 168s @ 2950fps in my 7RM Sendero.
    My rifle likes them .040 off the lands. I know but that gives the best accuracy.
    Play with the bullet seating and the speed.
    It took me the better part of 2 Saturdays to find the sweet spot.
    It now shoots 1/2 moa with ease.
