Re: decisions decisions help me out
Like Lefty said, I normally sling the 180 Berger VLD's out of mine...But prior to my discovery of them, I was shooting the 160 Nosler Accubonds, and the 168 Berger VLD's.
The 160 Accubonds are an excellent bullet for medium-large game. I've never had a deer run very far using them. They are clean and precise and don't seem to fragment too bad inside, but hit them in the vitals (right behind the shoulder) and it will look like chunky strawberrry jello in the chest cavity....Heart & lungs will be pulverized, but you will still have minimal meat damage.
I haven't had a chance to shoot a deer with the Bergers yet...But I will this year, and I will report back my finidings.
I use Federal 215 Magnum Rifle Primers, and have been deveoloping with H1000, because my local store hasn't got any RL25, 33, or 50.
I have tried talking them into ordering some for me, but I'm afraid I'll have to wait until 3rd Gen or Wideners or someone like that has them all in stock so I only have to pay 1 hazmat fee.
