Re: First Blood for the 6br!!!!!

Nice ram, good shootin. If you go back and pop one of those axis dont leave it there as crow bait. Axis is some of the best meat I have ever tasted...just got to thinking about it and had to get some out to thaw for supper tomorrow.

Re: First Blood for the 6br!!!!!

I am shooting the 105 amax to right at 2900 fps and it is the only VLD style bullet i am planning on shooting for game. the polymer tip just increases the chances of positive expansion so much at long range. After watching several pdogs trot off with fatal wounds from BJ's 6-250 and the 105 bereger I decided i would use use the amax

lerch,
the 105 v-max works very well at lower velocities such as in a 6mmBR or a 6-250, but wildcat is talking about a 6x284. these bullets varorize out of a 6x284 at any velocity. I cant get a reading of the f.p.s. from my chronograph because they are already in a copper butter lead mulch going through the sky screens. the berger 95gr VLD shoots better in all of my guns wont blow up like the 105gr berger,wont vaporize like the 105 a-max and will give wildcat the velocity he can make a half dozen posts off of. it has great terminal performance on varmints and on thin skinned big-game(deer,antelope).
UB
p.s. the berger 95gr VLD also has a better B.C. than the 105gr v-max .514 as opposed to .500

I dont really understand that but they will puff usually at speeds above 3200fps. Sorry wildcat I didnt see what you were shooting when you asked me, while the amax is a great bullet it aint gonna hold up to speeds that you can push it.

I personnaly just aint a big fan of berger bullets for varmint shooting. The do work great at normal ranges and they definantly have some amazing BC's but at longer range when the bullet has slowed down alot I have seen some bad showings by them, basically the bullets were preforming like a FMJ. You will have ALOT farther effective range with these bullets than i would at my velocities so I bet you like the results better. Im just kinda partial to those poly tipped bullets.

take it easy
steve
