    I am trying some new loads in my 25-06. I have a box of 115 gr Berger VLD's
    and want to try them out. I don't have access to the Berger manual.
    I may try RL-22 but other powder to probably. I have been loading since the
    days of Jack OConner so I do know to work a load up if someone has a pet load
    for me.

    Happy Trails everyone.

    200 yards 5 shots, 55.2 RL22 with 115 VLD, CCI250 primer. The bottom left shot was the first cold bore shot.
    You are welcome :D

    This forum fits me well, I've bought the bergers but haven't loaded them yet. I'm looking for long range accuracy, i.e. in the 500 700 yd range.
