Don't let a long jump scare you. Even with the secant ogive pointy bullets there are often multiple points between jammed and over 0.120" that give the best accuracy.

Start at the max the magazine will allow and seat shorter in 0.030 or 0.040 increments. make sure the bullet is held in the case below the ogive and watch for pressure as you seat them deeper but I have found ( by accident , that a load I was shooting at 0.020" jump also grouped very well at 0.120" jump.

this is a quote from Berger Bullets about making the VLD shoot.

Load 24 rounds at the following COAL if you are a hunter (pulling a bullet out of the case with your rifling while in the field can be a hunt ending event which must be avoided) or a competition shooter who worries about pulling a bullet during a match:
1. .010 off the lands (jump) 6 rounds
2. .050 off the lands (jump) 6 rounds
3. .090 off the lands (jump) 6 rounds
4. .130 off the lands (jump) 6 rounds

Shoot 2 (separate) 3 shot groups in fair conditions to see how they group. The remarkable reality of this test is that one of these 4 COALs will outperform the other three by a considerable margin. Once you know which one of these 4 COAL shoots best then you can tweak the COAL +/- .002 or .005. Taking the time to set this test up will pay off when you find that your rifle is capable of shooting the VLD bullets very well (even at 100 yards).

The original model that was first introduced !!!

Here is the newest one I found:

www.midwayusa.com/prod...oting-rest

They added a recoil absorbing "pad" to the rear rest.

They are in-stock at the local store. I might go ahead and try this one.
