I got arobeen getting around to doing some testing for the 168 Berger hunting bullet, I thought I would start a new thread instead of continuing the old one. The load data that Berger sent stated a max load of 42.5 gr. of Varget, I started 1 grain below and have worked from there. I have found that IN MY GUN 43.5 gr. of Varget with a overall length of 2.810 is producing a 5 shot 1/2" group @ 100 yards. I am not seeing any signs of that this is to hot. I sis go up to 44.0 gr. but groups opened up. I am going to play with seating depth a little to see if I can shrink the groups as I am layed up with a bad knee. I can't shoot @ range because of mud at the moment but will update as soon as I can.
