Hi gang.
I have a bunch of Bereger 115gn VLD's I want to use in my new 6XC BR rifle. I have called Berger and no one seems to have any load info for the 115 VLD's in the 6XC.....anyone here using them? If so what powder,charge weight,etc., are you using.

I have Varget, RL-17,H4350 and IMR-4350.


Thanks,Stan

I would not play with Varget with the 115's - bullet is just to heavy for that fast a powder in that cartridge.

With the other powders I would start around 37 gr and work up. You will probably max out around 38-39 gr of the other three (which are all about in the same burn rate).

Robert is correct, dont bother with Varget. 37.0grs should be a good starting point with H4350. I havent run the 115s in a bit so I cant recall if I was using 38 or 39 grs, but IF I was using 39, that would be maxed out or dang close to it. If you got a 1-8 twist, you are going to have to run then fast anyhow and they still may not shoot well, the 1-7.5 I had they really shot well in it.

Good luck.

RL17 is a good choice with 115s in the XC. My barrel is a 28" Bartlein 7.8tw with a .237" bore, and RL17 gives 3000fps or better with moly'd 115s with good accuracy. Wolf LRMs & F210s are my favorites.
