Does any body have the load data for a 105 vld bullet I am using Varget powder
I won that match with a 108 berger. In fact, 8 of the 10 top shooters were shooting 108 bergers.Sorry Guys. I am shooting a 6 mm BR. for a 300 yd sniper match, The Carlos Hathcock Match In Cherry Hill NJ. The bullet is a Berger 105 gr VLD. Berger says this strictly a target bullet. I was using Serra 107 HPBT, with 28.1 grs. of Varget. I could not find anything on line. Any body have anything
I have some 107 SMK ready . I will try them maybe tomorrow I am using Lapua brass, but I have a tight neck and had to neck turn them. I will try to make calverton tomorrow. The match is on Oct 25. Hope to see you thereI won that match with a 108 berger. In fact, 8 of the 10 top shooters were shooting 108 bergers.
That 105 VLD, and VLDs in general are kinda lame. I would go 107 SMK over the 105 Berger. I think the 107 SMK and 108 Berger are basically the same.
For that match, to be competitive, you should be able to hold .3 MOA at 300 vertically- that is about an inch- fr 20 shots. Wind is more forgiving.
I doubt it would be competitive. I shoot better than most people and have a hard time holding a 20 round strong of fire with a cartridge that heavy. The up side would be the bigger hole diameter. I've considered a 300 win mag to keep it real but it would be obnoxious to everyone else.How would a 336 lapua mag hold up in that match.
Oh dam now I need optics.
There is no such thing as a free puppy (or free gun)
