180 Berger Hybrid hunt results... so far.

So far I have taken 4 coyotes and 2 antelope with the 7mm 180 gr Berger Hybrid. From what I have seen, they work great for hunting. The farthest animal so far was an Antelope buck at 599 yds. The doe was 544, coyotes were 582, 361, 355, and 303. I don't have pics of everything, here are the ones I do.

I'm shooting 62 gr of 4831sc (above book max, but very slight pressure signs), according to Exbal they are going 3045 fps out of my 28" barrel. That seems fast to me, but it matches my drops.

Re: 180 Berger Hybrid hunt results... so far.

for what cartridge is your rifle chambered? 7wsm, 7saum?

Although you do not have pics, how would you describe the bullets performance on the antelope? did all the bullets expand 'correctly'?
