    Im ordering a benchmark barrel at 26 " in a sendero reamed with a ptg match chamber for 300 wsm throughted for 210's just wondering what some other favorite loads were. The berger data seems kinda slow ? Im going to run norma brass and start with H4831 sc seated close. its a rem long action. Thanx for any help. DB

    Dusty.

    I built a similar rifle for the Berger 210.

    Norma brass
    CCI-BR-2
    IMR-7828ssc @ 62.5 gr.
    2750 fps
    ES-11

    I could get to the next node but this one was a fuzz more accurate.

    YMMV

    63.0 gr of R-19 under a berger 190 vld with a WLR primer loaded to a coal of 2.889.

    and a 180 AB with 64.0 of R-19 WLR primer with a coal of 2.888

    I shot my first 1000 yard br match last weekend and I was happy with my first ever scored group. It was a 45 pionts and a 12-3/16 in..

    We had a steady 11 mph wind at 9oclock...

    my load was 300 wsm match chamber from Dave at PT&G in a stiller tac -300

    210 berger vld's
    norma brass
    br-2 primers
    65 gr. 4831sc
    .010 jamb

    I can only hope to improve my techniques and shrink that down...
    many of the other guys seemed to shoot a free recoil type style...
    best group was a 6-1/2 in. 49 points.
    I came in third place. hope to do better next time...
