    Anybody running the VLD's out of a 300 Win Mag?
    Looking for some load suggestions with the 190 gr and 210 gr VLD's.

    Thanks

    I get sub 1/2 MOA with 190g VLD, with 82g H1000. Shooting single shot. Loaded just to touch the lands. In a Savage 112 26" Varmint Stainless fluted barrel.

    Thanks Geargrinder. Do you have a guess on velocity?

    Only a guess, but I'd say a tad bit over 3000fps.

    Max load from Hodgon is 81g and 2990 fps.

    I'm right at what I would consider max load for me. Easy extraction, but primers flatten. I loose the primer pockets at about 5-6 loads. I've been using plain Rem brass.

    I use 82gr of H1000 and 84gr of Retumbo with 210's. With CCI primers both yield just over 3000fps depending on temp. With Fed GMM primers velocities increase 30-50fps.

    In my 300 Wby 79 gr of H 4831 puts the 190's at just over 3000 with a 26". I know that is not a win mag, but it might give you a starting place .

    I'll have to try the 4831 and H1000 both. I'd like to see those 210's running 2900 - 3000 fps.

    I have them both very soft, but they are accurate and easy on brass. They like the same load and I like that. The stock accumark with 26" barrel is at 3050 average and the 30" HS percision barred rifle shoots the same load at 3134 average and I have shot it a little over 1000 yards.

    Yup! Accuracy is better tan velocity.
    My Sendero in 300 RUM with 210 gr. Berger, I have had it close to 3200 ft/sec. My latest load is 93.0 Grns of Retumbo @ 3025 ft/sec; I left it alone because of how accurate it is and long brass life.
