I’m looking for some load info with Berger 70 grain vld and imr 4064 in 22-250. I was surprised to find that Berger has no info for this set up maybe it is a touch fast for this combo. Any help is appreciated.

I think you're right, Berger stopped listing IMR 4064 after the 64 grain Match FB Varmint.

Code
Cartridge          : .22-250 Rem. (SAAMI)
Bullet             : .224, 70, Berger VLD #22418
Useable Case Capaci: 38.598 grain H2O = 2.506 cm³
Cartridge O.A.L. L6: 2.350 inch = 59.69 mm
Barrel Length      : 24.0 inch = 609.6 mm

Predicted Data for Indicated Charges of the Following Powders.
Matching Maximum Pressure: 56875 psi, or 392 MPa
or a maximum loading ratio or filling of 100 %
These calculations refer to your specified settings in QuickLOAD 'Cartridge Dimensions' window.
C A U T I O N : any load listed can result in a powder charge that falls below minimum suggested
loads or exceeds maximum suggested loads as presented in current handloading manuals. Understand
that all of the listed powders can be unsuitable for the given combination of cartridge, bullet
and gun. Actual load order can vary, depending upon lot-to-lot powder and component variations.
USE ONLY FOR COMPARISON !

149 loads produced a Loading Ratio below user-defined minimum of 85%. These powders have been skipped.

This is what I ended up with with the ram shot I actually made it up to 36.3 grain with still no pressure signs but my chrono didn’t read the last couple velocities I suspect possibly because of a setting sun or maybe the cold

The higher I went the tighter the poi got I suspect the last 2 that didn’t read probably leveled off some on velocity the Berger book listed max charge at 35.4 but in my gun at 36.3 I was still showing no signs of pressure I think next time out I will keep going up with caution as it seemed to like the speed

As stated above, Varget.....awesome powder for the heavies. Hard to find data on 22-250 as most are twisted 1:12 and can't stabilize a 70gr VLD.
