They are great bullets. You need more coal so try pri, cammega and other mags. If you can find a vld magazine (very hard to find) that is the way to go but they required a bolt catch modification.
Like all Berger VLDs they are a tad jump sensitive so find your max coal and back out slowly. That is why I suggested the longer mags. Other thing that you can do is to sacrifice one mag and cut an opening in the front for a few extra hairs of length. Before you do that find out your max obviously and also just shoot them out of the longest mag you can find or max coal whichever comes first.
They shoot great out of 6BR and 6x45. Have not been able to stabilize yet in 1:9 3p but in other 1:9 work great.
Once you find the sweet spot they fly very nicely. A good AR should give you well below MOA consistently. I have not tried the 6mm on game myself but based on the results of any berger they end up DRT with one well placed shot.
What casing are you using?

I am using new lake city brass. Do you have a common COAL that you use?
So I am going to assume this is the 6x45. There is no common, it depends on the barrel chamber(reamer). Nevertheless I would try 2.35 COAL but before see how this stacks to your maximum since you might need to cut the front of a 5 shot magazine. Also check the feed ramps so you do not ram the loads with the tip of the bullets. I am not worry about offset only but getting the concentricity off. A double stack auto-loader goes through a pretty traumatic even for the load. Or simply try single feed at first.
The 90gr SGK fmj all shoot pretty well at 2.295 - 2.3 in all barrels I tested. It is actually very hard to come up with a bad load in the 6x45 because it is so forgiving. The VLDs are a different story though but when you get them dialed in they are amazing.
