    Hi I used the 30g Bergers for a while but switched to the 25g vmax as they worked much better in my rifle

    What setup have you got ?

    And what loads are you using ?

    I use the vitt 133 but couldn't find any load data so used the benchmark starting load due to the two powders being close in the burn table. I can't remember exactly what load I ran with the 25 grain vmax but I think it was 18.5 grain giving a mv of 3800fps and I could put ten rounds thru a penny at a 100 yards and I've shot grey backs out to almost 450 yards
