Out of my 7mm rem. I'm shooting the 168 Berger 2800fps at the muzzle. On a mature 8.5 year old bull elk at 690yds it shattered the thick bone below the shoulder blade, through the vitals, and then stopped against that heavy bone on the opposite side. The bullet core I found weighed 62grs. The elk did 2 jumps and died. Thats the only experience I've had with them on game beyond 300yrds.
Bergers seem to be more accurate than other bullets in the guns I reload for, but they also seem to shoot there best when touching or almost touching the lands. 2 of my rifles are now single shots because of this, but still working on a fix for them.
