I loaded some Berger 168 and 175 VLDs and playing with seating off the lands really helped with accuracy. But I mainly load to work in the magazine box so at 2.800" factory specs I was still able to get around 3/8 moa pretty easily in my PSS. Right around 2750 fps for both and flatter trajectories. I'm pretty sure that was with RL15. YMMV. I still have some IMR 4895 and H4895 left so that's probably what I'll load the last of my Berger 168 and 175 VLDs with.RL-15 and BL-C(2)
It’s what we had on hand. Been loading for a gas gun. The RL15 behind 168 Berger’s shot well.
The BL powder behind 168 ABLR’s started at 2700 FPS and went to 2826 but didn’t seem to have the accuracy I get from the ABLR’s in my 7 mag.
From what I saw in factory ammo and the Berger’s, and based on the responses here - I think 2600 will be the accuracy node I will play around the edges of.
