    Just got my 280ai back from gunsmith going to try the berger 168vld col in the
    berger book gives a col of 3.330 My question is it safe to push the col out to 3.450 ?
    I made up a dummy round at that col and it will chamber in and out with no problems. The gun will be used for deer mainly and maybe some paper killing.
    So if anybody out there can give some direction to a freshmen reloader I would be grateful.

    Thanks Dirk

    If you will look at the second sticky from the top on this reloading page you will see there is an article that will tell you everything you need to know about loading Berger VLD bullets.
