Sitka Black Tail 640 yards.

Entry hole



Exit hole



Well anyone who has a question about Berger bullets. Take a gander at these pics, this buck was DRT. never even flinched just dropped.
Gun was my 300 RUM 210 Berger.

Re: Sitka Black Tail 640 yards.

Thanks for posting. these are some of the best "Berger results" photos I've seen.
I am going to be hunting spring bear this year with a 300 WSM and I am struggling to decide between the 180 Accubond and the 185 Berger VLD. I don't want the hide to have an exit hole like the one in your photo, but at the same time I want it DRT too!

Understandable I would be interested in seeing a slower velocity round with the 210. These are moving right along about 3100 fps. Maybe I will load some in my 30.06 and see. I shot my bear last year with my '06 with a 168 A-Max. It was definitely DRT, but was on a dead run at me and I shot it at about 10 feet. LOL
