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

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).
p.s. the berger 95gr VLD also has a better B.C. than the 105gr v-max .514 as opposed to .500
It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
