I must have gotten lucky, they shot well right off the bat. Didnt have to play around with seating deapth to much or anything.

    Yea they don't give the MRX away. How do the Bergers do with shorter range targets like say 150-200 yrds.\?

    Sometimes instead of expanding, they grenade. I shot a black bear with a 210 VLD from 20 feet with my 300 WM this past spring. No part of that bullet ever reached the far side of the animal. Never penetrated more than 12". But that 12" was like a hollowed out pumpkin.

    I watched a friend of mine whack a nice 3 point muley a few weeks ago with a 30-06 and the 168 Berger VLD at 380 yards. The bullet grenaded and didn't go through the shoulder (where it was shot) but we found bits of the jacket all over the place and the buck died instantly. I might have gone for the heart/lungs at that range but you can't argue with dead. Every animal I've seen get hit with Bergers since 2002 has died instantly and violently and they rank first on my list of "deadly".
