    Just fire formed 40 pieces of brass and broke in my new custom rifle with a 26" 1in10 twist barrel. I am looking for loads using the 115 VLD's and would like to hear from anyone that has found accurate loads using this bullet. Going to use this gun for long range speed goat and mule deer.

    Out of a 26" barreled Cooper using Lapua 30-06 cases (70.5grs H2O after Fireformed), Berger 115gr VLD's, 57.2grs Reloader 22 gets 3330fps, and sits at a node of 1.194ms. I worked this load up from 52grs and suggest it to be a good place to start.
