I have shot whitetail out to 448 with my 257 Weatherby shooting the 115VLD and he flopped on the spot(go to the whitetail thread and look at 448 yard buck). My cousing has takin a 600 yard whitetail with the 168VLD in 7mm with the exact same results. The only thing is we have never had any exit wounds with the bergers except on head shots and all of them were withing 250 yards.
Something else I think you need to see is a video called "Beyond Belief" as it showcases nothing but long range kills and they are all done with either a 243 with a 105 Berger, 7mm and 168 Berger, and a 300 with the 190 Berger. They take game out to 1078 yards(coyote) but also take a cow elk at 1074 yards. Tons of kills on the video too! Also they kind of give a little bit of arguing on why they can and do long range hunting.
