Re: Lets see your berger kills!

Not exactly the type of photo normally seen on LRH, and not a long range kill, but my first Berger kill. A small Oklahoma 6pt taken at 41 paces with a T/C Encore 15" bbl 30-06 Ackley Improved back in 2010. Berger 168 HVLD @ 2650 FPS muzzle velocity. Bullet impacted just behind the left shoulder (under my and then turned to shrapnel, leaving the insides a bloody mess. I found bullet fragments all the way at the back of the deer's gut cavity at the rectum. The shot was quartering towards me.

The 88 lb buck dropped in his tracks, then attempted to move but quickly expired.

Sorry about the poor quality pic. It's the only picture I have of the buck.

I finally got around to weighing the recovered 300 gr OTM 128 grs, 74 grs jacket alone, better than I expected.

Re: Lets see your berger kills!

Kansas whitetail from last year. Berger 168 VLD hunter with 46 gr Varget .308 Tikka T3 Stainless Lite at about 340 yards.

Just discovered this LRH website earlier this year, so now putting more of this info ff to use.
Working up towards an elk adventure next year (fingers crossed). Just put a D.E. Cheek Piece from the LRH store on my 300WM, so gearing up....well, at least looking the part.

Re: Lets see your berger kills!

This post is dedicated to the ladies shooting those Berger Buck and Bull Bustin’ Bullets.

Time to keep their husbands off the gun and behind a spotting scope to watch their ladies bust some bucks and bulls.

Here are a few of my favorite from the current and past Montana hunting season.

Lets see your berger kills!-elk.jpg
747 Yards, 338 LM, 300 OTM. This lady hunter fired her first ever and only big game shot to date on what she called “a plump and meaty tasty eating elk.” Her husband had a vendetta after hunting his entire life and witnessing his wife “out shoot” him on her first hunt.

Lets see your berger kills!-5x5.jpg

Over 800 yards on probably on of the toughest shots I have witnessed to date. This 5x5 hit the dirt after connecting with a 300 OTM. The shot was on the edge of the vitals but this powerhouse “sealed the deal.” It took some lady delicate shooting to make this happen.

983 Yards, 300 RUM, 230 Target. This buck tipped over right in his bed. Her husband was whining, “How far was that, how far what that, she didn’t beat my longest shot did she?” Uhhhhhh yea! Sorry dude, you don’t hold the longest shot in your family anymore!

MT Huntress Bags 1107 Yard 6X6 Bull
This will surely top my best 10 hunting trips of all time.

I beg to differ!!! Ladies Shoot Better Ladies Shoot Berger

Re: Lets see your berger kills!

Here is a video link to another berger kill made by a dedicated huntress. 260 rem with 140 VLD at 604 yards. the terminal ballistic performance speaks for itself. Another satisfied 406 Precision long range student who seems pretty confident with her skills at the end of the video,,,,to say the least!
