Re: Berger VLD for Marmots
I've shot a BUNCH of ground hogs with the heavier caliber , 168 7mm, 115 25-06 , and with the 80 g .224 Bergers. The larger calibers seem to do fine even out past 1000 yards . The 80g 224 at mv of 3400 works well at less than 400 yards and over 900 but I seemed to get a lot of pass throughs at the in between yardages. I use the Hornaday 75 A-max in the same gun (22-243) and get good expansion out to 800, it has about the same BC so I don't have to change turrets.
