Re: Berger Bullets

I would think 30, 338, 6.5, 6, 223 would be popular calibers to stock bullets in. There are a lot of people shooting the 338's and just from this site alone they could support business of some more 338's.

After this batch of 300's is gone ill be moving to SMK's

Re: Berger Bullets

I shoot 168 and 180 7mm hunting VLDs. If you hit the animal in the high shoulder with either of these bullets they will not move. Lung shots are nearly as good.

Love them. Here are some pictures of what we have taken. Also go to page three. 7WSM 180 Berger takes down two Grizzlies!

Why move to a similar bullet with less BC?

I have both rifles as well. I shoot the 150 VLD in my 270 with IMR4350 and a Fed215M primer

The 7mag, well, I have some 180 VLDs on the way to try.

Re: Berger Bullets

keep the smaller caliber bullets off of heavy bone and you will be fine.
