I recently picked up one box each of 4 different weights of Berger VLD's for my .308. They are: 168 gr VLD 185 gr VLD 190 gr VLD 210 gr VLD The rifle is has a 26" barrel with 1:12 twist. I have just started the process of determining a load to start with and I ran into a snag of sorts. When I started checking the stability factor of each bullet I discovered that the two heaviest bullets required a muzzle velocity of 3,000 fps to be stabilized. My Sierra manual stops at 2,400 - 2,500 fps for Sierra bullets around this weight. Now I'm not certain if I can achieve 3,000 fps mv without having pressure problems. On the other hand, they make the bullet so it can apparently be shot with some reliability. The 210 VLD is a hoss if it can be shot at 3,000 fps mv Lots of energy and lots of distance available with it. Any ideas?
