    I have not shot those bullets,I shoot Berger 105vld. In 243. I have found Berger bullets to be very consistent. I shoot Berger in my 300win mag as well. So far(300 bullets checked) they have been 94% being less that .0005" difference in bearing surface length and with in .1 grains in weight. Shoot great and perform well. Jme

    Is the store ur talking about in McAllen tx?

    I shoot 95 g vlds exclusively. They shoot .6 moa at 700 yards. That's about 4 inches. I use Norma brass, fed 210 primers, 44.5 grains of h483, and they are seated 12 thousands off the lands. Make sure your rifle has at least a 9 in 1 twist rate.

    Yes, I shoot the 95 gr Classic Hunters in my .243Win, with H4350 powder. I don't remember the charge weight, but these shoot better than the VLD or Nosler BT in my gun.
