    Gonna work on some loads for the 270 wsm with 140 Hunting VLDs. Does anyone have load data from Berger they can share with me?

    I have emailed them directly, but in the past they have taken a little while to reply and I would like to take advantage of this nice weather.

    Thanks in advance.

    This information is taken from the Berger reloading manual. They list 13 different powders with the 140 VLD bullets so I will not list them all but here are some of the most used powders in the 270WSM.


    Powder,start load, velocity, Max load ,velocity


    IMR-4831 (53.5) 2723 ( 59.8 ) 3002

    RL-19 (55.0) 2815 ( 61.1) 3109

    H4831SC (58.5) 2745 ( 65.0 ) 3133


    Retumbo ( 64.0) 2758 (71.0) 3100
