Have you measured the length of your chamber with those bullets? Bergers like to be set close to the lands or touching. My method of measuring uses two wooden dowels, one to press the bullet against or into the lands, the other used from the muzzle to measure the distance. Then use the muzzle dowel to measure the length of the empty barrel and chamber - the difference gives you your best OAL for Bergers.
I like the 210gr in 30, but they are making rather long cartridges when set to the right distance. They might not fit into the magazine in your gun.
I used to love being able to hit hard at 1000 yards. As I get older I find hitting a mini ram at 200 yards with the 22 oddly more satisfying.
