Re: Berger Gen 2 ELR testing

Shawn,

Thanks for the update.

Can you tell me if any of the shots you fired were not spotted or if any of them at all landed unexpectedly lower than the rest?

Re: Berger Gen 2 ELR testing

90 % were spotted of the ones that wern't i believe the bullets slipped into a crack in the rock, I believe we would have spotted a low hit.

On expansion search this section I did some testing at 1400 and 1800 fps impact velocities.

Re: Berger Gen 2 ELR testing

Shawn,

That's mind boggling to me.

Just to help put it in perspective, you're talking about MOA at extreme long range.... but, how does that same rifle/load perform at 200-1000 yds?

Thanks!
Richard

Re: Berger Gen 2 ELR testing

My initial groups with the rifle at 100 yards were in the .230-.270" range. 800-1000 yard performance was sub 1/2 moa.

Oliveralan,

Please send an email to either Teresa Collins at teresa.collins@bergerbullets.com or to sales@bergerbullets.com. Provide either of them with your address and they will find the dealer nearest you that has inventory of the OTM. These bullets are in stock at our plant so those dealers who don't have them need only to order.

Regards,
Eric

Re: Berger Gen 2 ELR testing

Shawn,

I'm curious, what altitude above sea level are you shooting these tests? I've observed the bullets to be transonic stable out to 2400 in Wyoming last year, but that was at 6500 feet ASL. I've been wondering how low altitude they would survive. Denser air at low altitude is much harder on transonic stability than less dense air found higher up.

Last week we shot these bullets to a mile, but they were only slowed to ~1200 fps in our conditions. Not too much transonic action there.

Thanks for the report,
-Bryan
