    What kind of velocity are you getting out your 300WSM using the 210VLD, Whats your barrel lenght and twist. Also have you ever shot the 190VLD? Have you shot any deer with these yet.

    Boyd, do you think a 10 twist 24" barrel would handle the 190VLD's

    Where can I get any loading data for the 300WSM using the Bergers. Also are you getting better accuracy when touching the lands or not?

    I've shot alot of Bergers lately and all of them shoot just touching the lands...

    Wyo, both groups are great, the 300WSM is .18 center to center, that's sweet. Who has the best prices on the Berger's, so far I've found Cliffs gunsmithing
