    Nah had a sweet one for 143 eldx in the Sako I just moved on. Good news is the new 260 has no pressure at the same load weight while being seated in further. Have some 143 loads to try now but still want to try the 130s too.

    The Berger 130gr VLD Hunting projectile shot great in my Sako 260Rem. I found they killed well on everything except small bodied game (small goats and hares, etc.) and occasionally they would pencil through if right up close. I had them over 3000fps out of a 26" barrel.

    That rifle is now a full blown target rifle and so I have moved on to the 130gr Hybrids. Pretty sure I still have a box or two of the VLDs sitting at the reloading bench though.

    Using 45 of 2209 for a mere 2830 unvalidated at this stage mate. I am guilty of going to fast too soon in the past so trying the easy does it approach

    Sounds good Gibo I am getting similar groups with 120 Amax and 45.5 I seated some 140's way out to where the bolt needs to be removed from the rifle so it will eject if the round isnt fired. I think I will go single shot on those puppies if they work out to be a good load. Was thinking they would be good at the Toby shoot, but I cant come.
