    Loading 300 Berger's to try. Will they reach max pressure at a similar charge weight as the 300 SMK?

    Thanks

    I can run bergers a little hotter than smk without pressure. I would still work up carefully but you may be able to go a little hotter and run 50fps faster. I still use more smk than bergers but love em both.
