Re: 7WSM 180 Berger takes down two Grizzlies!

Wow, great hunt and great shooting! Thanks for sharing the pics and report. I have never had the pleasure to hunt Griz but may in the future if I can swing it. Looks like they had the same kind of terminal results on the big bears that I have with Bergers on Elk , deer and so on. A lot can be said for a steady rest and a good shooter on any game. And an accurate bullet doesn't hurt either.

Congrats to the hunters and their well placed shots.

Jeff

    Great pictures, I'm jealous!

    Just out of curiosity, were they shooting the VLD's or the Hybrids?

    Thanks guys. Someday i will be the one behind one of those big bears.

    The gun is a Precision Shooting Sports light weight hunter. It is built off of there action. I have since gone with Bighorn actions. The load I use I all the 7wsm is h1000 with the 180 vld's.

    I agree a very well placed shoot can do a lot to any animal your shooting at. Also the confidence the shooter has after being able to know where the gun is shooting does more for a successful hunt then anything.

    Emphasis mine.

    This cannot be emphasized enough.
