Just tried Berger 130 VLDs

Just thought I'd throw out there that I tried Berger 130 VLDs with 34.0 gr of 8208 today.  Haven't replaced my chrony yet so I don't have really good data.  At 15000ths off there were no signs of high pressure.  5 shot group was around .600", best 3 were .380".  I thought that wasn't too bad for a novice with a tactical rifle shooting off a 40 year old picnic table.  Will try again from concrete soon.  Maybe even get velocities before I work up.  I'll be pissed if I'm doing all this around a 2300 fps load, but with no data out there for this bullet/powder combination you have to start somewhere.
