Re: Lets see your berger kills!

WOW....really glad I read through this thread...on something of a whim I bought a box of 155 gr VLD hunting to try when I get the new barrel for my .308. I wanted a lighter bullet that still had a decent BC....looks like the Bergers might just do it for me. Thanks for sharing everyong

Re: Lets see your berger kills!

One thing I feel is important here, at least for my intended uses anyway. I always opt for the heavier caliber offerings. I feel this is especially important for long range shots and chamberings with higher velocity. The more impact velocity the more fragments you will get, it's that simple. If you are going to stretch em out for a long shot, go heavy for the great BC's and retained velocity and energy. I guess what I am saying here is if you load a very light bullet at high velocity, like you would to get the splat factor on a prairie dog, and then go out and center punch a large bull square in the shoulder with a hand load better suited for a coyote, you might just get something to pizz about. Then you can become a internet bullet expert and blame the round you loaded wrong for the failure.

emn83 this was not directed for you. Take that .308 with a 150 or a 168 and with those velocities if you keep the distances where that load will be effictive, you will fold em up like a fat man in a cheap lawn chair.

did't thing it was necessarily directed at me, but I appreciate your advice all the same. Max velocity I'd expect with my rifle and the 155 VLD is like 3000, but more likely in the 2800-2900 range for a safe load. Still figuring out what distances would be appropriate for my cartridge set up....will do more figuring when the gun is built up and I can get a load figured out

Thanks Eaglet. She has turned into quite a hunter in the last few years. She has definatly learned how to break a trigger properly.
