    Hey fella's,

    I've got a custom .300 Win. Mag that I've been shooting 210 Berger VLD's out of for a while now and they've done really well. But I have been doing some theoretical analysis of these bullets compared tot he 215 Berger and the 230 Berger and I really like the balance the 215 grain bullet gives me. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with this bullet in this chambering and had any suggestions on what powder to use. I'm planning on trying H-1000, Retumbo, RL-22 and RL-25 but if anyone had any pads that worked well for them, I'd greatly appreciate any advice.

    Thanks much.

    I'm looking at the same thing. It seems the 215's may be fairly new. I don't remember seeing them until very recently. May take a little while for a lot of load info to start showing.
