So I stumbled on 500 168gr Berger vlds. My plan was to shoot 140 absolute hammers out of this gun which is a semi custom with a 24” 8 twist proof barrel but I thought I’d see if anyone has tried a 168 Berger in a 7mm-08 Ackley or even a standard. I know it doesn’t have a ton more case capacity but it does have a couple more grains. I’ve got IMR 4166, imr 4350 and imr 4831 on hand plus two pounds of varget. Anyone have any thoughts? Leaning towards trying 4350 and 4831 too see what it’ll do.
