Re: 6mm 105 Berger VLD
I have a 6mm-284 also ,I loved shooting the berger 105's but if I pushed them past 3200fps they blow up coming out the muzzle ,so I switched to the 107gr SMK's with no problems and have shot rockchucks out to 1515yds with this combo.
The problem with my rifle is that it has a 3 groove barrel that is much tougher on a bullet than a 4,5,6 groove barrel. dont buy too many and try both. the berger perform's much like a varmint bullet at close range (because of the thin skinned J4 jacket) and at 1000yds out the SMK's perform like FMJ's (because they are so heavily constructed) they both have pluses and minuses so see what gun likes. dont waste your time with trying 105 A-Max's the b.c. is too low and they come apart hitting a blade of grass at 6mm-284 vel.
It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
