We have only taken 3 elk with the 300 bergers. Longest shots were 800 and change. All were complete pass throughs with 1 1/2 to 2" exits. All DRT!!! I have taken several before the Bergers with 300 SMK's here is the only bullet that didn't pass through. 526 yards in the crease behind the near shoulder and stopped after breaking the far shoulder of a large 6 point bull.
