I have only ever shot animals with 140+ grain bullets in my creedmoors.

Those Berger's are crazy expensive right now and almost impossible to find. Hope you have lots of hand.

I have about 700 ish or so VLDH and Target combined. I have been switching to 140ELDM's as they are cheaper. ( I have shot ELDX, have 3 boxes of those and I think 4 boxes of the ELDM. I like to shoot, so have to reduce my cost somehow.

I have a part box of vldh that I'm not using. I have piles of hornady and nosler bullets on hand that I am using. Lucky I found a couple 8lbr's of H4350 not that long ago at a good price.

Some primers are the only thing I am a little shy on for reloading components.

i get all 3 speed accuracy 7 consistency with FED 130 T/A{2888 fps] & horndy 143 eld{2790 fps] WITH A 24 INCH BARREL   with super performance  i also get lower  over all pressure  with super performance {60100 psi} then i do with h4350 6.5 stable or hv 100  normally the pressure for these powders  61300-61600 psi
is pushing  borderline max pressure  for the creed at much  lower  velocities
