I'm getting into bergers a bit in 7mm but I might not even get to try anything new this year as I don't have a tag yet and may not get one the way it is going...
The way my 168 VLD's performed in my 7mmRM this past season, I have been extremely pleased.
For deer-sized game, the 168 would be ideal. But for LR deer and larger game, I would go 180's.
