    I have loaded Berger 130gr (.452BC) with 26.9grs of AA2200 that got me 1.071" at 100 yards. It's the only 130gr bullet I've found that I can seat deep enough to allow me to use my magazines without going beyond the ogive.

    I play with the 130s and 140s a little, h335 will be your friend.

    From my understanding the shorter 130 gr bullets work best but I have some 130 gr Berger VLDs that I will be trying out. These need to be loaded as long as your magazines will allow.

    I've loaded the Berger Classic as the regular VLD. The regular VLD shot better, for me. I used H335 and AA2200. The Aa2200 provided the best grouping and speed. Here is the write up. I also shot a good size hog with the regular VLD and was happy on how it performed.


    I don't think the spreadsheets came up and I am at work right now. But with AA2200 I used up to 27.5, and H335 was 30.0. When I get off shift in a few days I can give ya speeds.

    I have a ton (1500?) of the 130gr Nosler Flat Base Spitzers. I should probably work up a load for them... or save them for Constructor's 270AR chambering.

    I use the Speer 130 gr BTSP's (# 1458). They're shorter for a 130 grain bullet and have a nice ballistic coefficient of .449. Loaded to 2.295" using 27.5 gr of AA2200 they average about 2,515 fps out of my 20" barrel and shoot under MOA.
