    Thinking of trying Berger's 68 gr target bullets for coyotes. Any receipes out there or should I just try to find a load for their 80 gr. bullet. Have never shot Berger's before.

    If you have never shot berger before you need to read the artical on the homepage loading for VLD bullets it will tell you everything you need to know about how to get the most out of them.

    I used the infor for my 300 win mag and found my load in 16 rounds

    My stock savage 243 shoots the 80gr berger very well with h4350. I think they're 5tho off the rifling. I've not got to use them on anything but paper yet.
