I have read nothing but positive reviews about the Bergers for hunting, which is why I recommended them.
Thanks for that. From my experience (I have to relay this as I think it plain cruel on game not to say something).... I can safely say that 130gr .270 Berger VLDs were by far the worst bullet I have ever
used on game, and by some margin. I am so astonished at their recommendation for hunting, particularly in the light of all the rave reviews that you have also become aware of, that I feel that I have to say that VLDs are not
a guaranteed performer. I have shot twenty something animals from feral goats to red deer in size, from 50m to 400m, and other than spine shots (which any old piece of lump of metal will look the business when striking the spine), they were insufferably cruel in their execution of the task. If you did not have a dog to help in tracking, then you might want one! These were the hunting bullets not the target bullets which I understand people can confuse.
I can not speak more lowly of these; I cannot speak of the other VLD calibres but there are a few threads round that detail identical examples to that I experienced. I hope that this might save some unnecessary suffering should people see the early signs in experimenting with VLDs.
Back to Amaxs on moose......anyone?
