    I am seeking recommendations for loads for a 300 Weatherby Mag or a 300 Jarrett with a 1 in 12" rate of twist. Is a 12 twist barrel optimal for this bullet? Berger recommends a twist rate of 12 for their 190 grain VLD hunting bullet.gun)

    12 twist will work with up to 200 grain jacketed lead bullets. 190s IMHO are perfectly balanced with 11.25 but 12 is also a really good twist. Especially at 300 mag velocities.

    I have used the 190 Berger HVLD for years in the 300 Weatherby with success. Barrell is a Shilen 1/12. Weatherby cases, CCI Mag, H4831sc. I have pushed the load to 3100 however best accuracy, has been in the mid 2900s. Game has been shot with this bullet from 120 to 540 yards, it dumps all the energy in the animal.
