Thanks for the explanation.

This was 2010 bull at 690 yards, with a 168vld out of a 7mm. Chrono's about 2750fps. It broke the first shoulder, and then I found a 61 grain chunk of bullet against the opposite shoulder.

Awesome pics Broz, I really like how you start em off with the close up head shot of the yote If you ever run out of freezer room for the elk meat you can send some down south ??? You must live in a hunters paradise ! Our white tail doesnt taste nothing like Elk or mule deer.

Awesome pics the whole thread !!

Whacked with a 60gr Berger from a 22-250 at 300+ yards, he was lying there then just straightened out for some reason

Doe took a 60gr bullet at the point of shoulder at 200 yards, blew the center to goo after blowing through the shoulder.

Re: Lets see your berger kills!

wow bingreen, Im suprised at the success of the 22-250. They're not legal for big game up here, I always thought the bullets would just bounce off! (Broz Im joking, just to clarify).

Kinda neat to see fragmenting bullets work on big game out of small calibers. I was thinking about using my .243 with 95's this year for some whitetale, but thought that It wouldnt be a good idea with the bergers... looks like I was wrong.

Re: Lets see your berger kills!

Angus, the 60gr Berger is starting out at 3500fps and we have only had a couple not exit but the vitals were just mush. The one doe was at 506 yards and it exited with about a 2 in hole nothing but lungs but it smoked her. My buddies killed a bunch of whitetail with it also, works awesome!!
Another friend shoots a 243 and the 105's, he's piled up deer like crazy and never had one not exit, he's killed one bull at 100 yards, blew through one shoulder and destroyed the spine and ended up under the of side, the other bull was 500 ish and took two to the chest and end of story.
