Re: My longest Coues buck!
Now, I dont want to get into a ******* match here, but I think the Berger did exactly like it is designed. I really think that was the difference between killing/finding that deer and just killing it. I hit the deer just a tad too far back (still got back of lungs). I think a TSX or Accubond (what I use in my other guns) would have blow right through and not killed the deer like the VLD did.
Believe me, I did my research and went back on forth trying to decided weather or not to use the VLD for situations exaclty like you described.. After talking in great lenght with John Barnesnes, I decided I would give them a try.
77" coues buck, last day 571 yards. .257 Wby. 115 VLD
