Re: berger bullet near extinction

Actually you'd be fine on deer with a good shot placement with the target bullets, Its what Best of the West used for years before the official Hunting bullet from berger came our.

My local shop has been waiting 6 months for the bullets you want, however he said that they are shipping out 6.5mm bullets at the moment so you may get lucky and find them somewhere. I just haven't seen any recently.

From what I've read, what the target bullet was then, IS the hunting bullet now. They renamed the old target bullets to the hunting line, and the new target bullets have a thicker jacket (to prevent the bullets from blowing up).
