    New to berger vld bullets have some on the way. My question is can I use my rcbs reloading dies to load these rounds. Also can you guys help my with your data. I hunt whitetails in at. At ranges 0-500 yards my gun is a Winchester model 70 in a coyote. Thank you and happy Thanksgiving

    don't know why you wouldn't be able to use your dies. you do need a vld seater plug though. My 7RemMag load is 168 VLD and 73.0 gr Retumbo, Win brass, 215M primer, .010 off the lands, 3010fps.

    I think the rcbs seater will work with the vld's where the hornady seater will use the tip to the bullet rather than the ogive but someone correct me if I am wrong.
