Re: 338 300 grain berger VLD???
I have not used the gen 2 OTM bullets myself. My brother in law and his family has taken a spike elk, deer, and a 6pt bull at 605 yards with them out of his 338 Lapua AI.
My gun has taken a spike bull at 300 yards and a cow at 550 with the gen 1's out of a 338edge. I have not gotten a pass through and think the gen 1's are thinner jacketed, performance has been awesome, but in fairness both bullets were found against the off shoulders. I don't know if I have the shoulder to shoot the 300 grainers out of a 338 win mag with no brake? They are very accurate bullets.
