I am ready to start reloading for my sendero 300WM once I can get some brass for it. I have 210 grain Berger vld hunting bullets and imr 7828 but I have not found any data for this combination. Any help is appreciated

Haven't loaded the berger bullet, but 72.4 gr.of IMR7828 with 200 gr.Accubonds works for me.

Use the 208 A-max data at the link below, and it will have the data you need for 7828.

Thanks. What about seating depth? I've never used Bergers and I've heard they can be difficult to get the seating right

Seat them just touching the lands, and you're good.

Then if you want to keep tweaking, we have had good results experimenting with jumping to the lands in five thousandth increments. But that is after searching for the right powder charge seating the bullet even with the lands. It may shoot just fine.
