Anyone have load data for the Berger VLD 175g bullet in a 300 WSM?
 
Never used Berger before and wanted to try them...
 
Thanks for the info.

ask berger, they are very willing to give you some loads to start with. reloader 19 with a 180gr bullet was very accurate in my old 300wsm.

Check out Reloaders Nest and see what they have used.  
Use caution when using these loads listed by internet "spooks" though.

Finally heard from Berger, today.  They gave me the following info:
 
Load data was generated using Quick Load a 26 inch barrel a COAL (cartridge over all length) of 2.860 inches and your COAL and velocity could be a little different.
AS WITH ALL RELOADING APPROACH THE MAXIMUM LOADS WITH CAUTION AS ALL RIFLES AND RELOADING TECHNIQUES WILL BE DIFFERENT. If YOU CHANGE ANY OF YOUR COMPONENTS; THIS INCLUDES DIFFERENT POWDER LOT NUMBERS; YOU MUST REFIGURE YOUR LOADS BY STARTING WITH THE MINIMUM LOAD.
 
If we can be of any additional help feel free to contact us.
Thanks for your interest and have a great day.
