    Berger 185 grain Hunting VLD, Winchester Brass, Fed 215M primer, and 62.5 grains of RL 17. It runs a decent velocity out of my 23 inch barrel (2900 fps according to my actual drops) and has great accuracy.

    That load is 1.5 grains above the max in the Berger manual so work up to it. I'd start around 59.0 grains.

    So this morning went to the range about 11:45AM.
    Outside temp. 89 degs. F., barometric press. 30.03, and Sunny.
    Thanks to all for your help!:)

    I am excited by your results. I have a savage 16 in 300 wsm I haven't even shot yet (guilty of having more than 1 rifle I like to use :) ). I have some RL 17 and have been wondering about performance. I hope to have some results like you have, but who knows???

    Thanks for posting that!

    Question, what primers did you use? How far from the lands did you seat your bullet?

    Where did you find a Berger Manual? I've been put on a waiting list for one but no one has contacted me about them yet.
