    IF you email Berger for some load data for a spacific caliber, they will email you it back. That is where i got this.

    Loading the 168 Bergers, it seemed the faster the better. I hit my max at 80gr RL25. pretty much one hole groups @3170. Thats with a Sako 75 and Fed 215match primers. Good luck and let me know how you make out. Bucky
