    I'm working on a load using the 210 Berger VLD's in my .300 win mag and was wondering if anyone had any loads that shot well out of their rifles. Thanks much.

    try H1000 with 76gn.this is working really great for me in my 300wm.but mine are the match BT's, but would think it will give you really good results also.andd use a 215m or 250 primer

    Another vote for 210 VLD and H-1000 ... 74 gr and work up. CCI 250 or a Fed 215 GM. Most of mine have shot from .005 in the lands to .020" off.

    another vote for H-1000 and the 210. Johnboy and i use the same load, except seating depth. I use 76gr H1000 210VLD 20thou jammed CCI-BR2 primer. That primer has shot best in all of my rifles to date. Plus it's stronger and takes more pressure. Start 72grs unless your using hard brass like winchester and tough primers like cci. Should be fine starting at 74, but what the heck, load one at 72 and one at 73 to be safeR.

    I've only just started to work up a load with the 210 Bergers in mine but from the looks of the results (very preliminary) 64.4 gr of IMR4350 looks promising. Just two groups shot with it so far so it's far from proven. One at 100m was stellar (.418") but at 200 it fell apart (2.882"). I've since switched scopes from a 3.5-10x to 5.5-22x and I think the difference will be night and day and will improve results.
