Re: Berger 338 Tac-Match Bullets on game...

Thanks guys!!! That's exactly what I've been looking for. Just finished reading the entire thing, links and all. Now I'm convinced I need to give the 2nd gen Bergers a try, since my supply of SMK's are running low. May as well go ahead and order a batch...

sp6x6, I think that pic of the antelope with its side opened is a good indication of what the bullet will do to the whitetails around here. Since they are similar in size. Gotta try it out before our season closes Jan. 1st.
