This is a heated debate. I've been using Bergers for several years. I have not had a terminal failure. Thousands, if not millions are having great success with them as well. There is no shortage of evidence supporting thier terminal effectiveness. The accuracy and long range performance are superb. Barnes makes a penetrator. Thier bullets are good bullets. Unfortunately, the BC and velocity window they open at leaves a lot to be desired in a long range bullet. The Accubonds are a great compromise.
You should understand how Bergers and other bullets function terminally. They all have different characteristics, different velocity windows, etc.
Your VX3 is a good scope. The mark 4 is a better scope. As for the reticle, I prefer reticles that are the same as my turrets. I use MOA systems. Nightforce and Vortec PST offer reticles I like. The TMR isn't a bad reticle. MOA is simpler for me to use.
