    I am going to order some 130 bergers for my remington 700 sendero264 Win MAG. Right now I shoot 130grn Accubond behind 55.5 grns of IMR 4350 they shoot 3120fps and I am shooting in the .3s and .4s with this load. I am looking for a good load for the bergers that will shoot between 3100-3300fps and at least 1/2 moa. thanks for the helpgun)

    I have not tried the Bergers yet. The 130 AB with 66.5 grs Retumbo does 3350 from my 264 mag with a 27 3/4" barrel and shoots a ragged hole at 100 and under 2" at 300 yards. I killed 4 deer with it this season and all were bang flop out to 275 yards. I have some short shots and am afraid that the Bergers might evaporate on the hair at those speeds on 100 yards shots.
