Anyone hunting with Bergers

Has anyone used the Berger VLD's in 30cal. weight range 190-210gr. for Whitetails? I've heard some have had problems with them mushrooming. [img]images/icons/confused.gif[/img]

Re: Anyone hunting with Bergers

I used the 7mm `180's in 7wsm at 3000 fps. Thses are the worst hunting bullets I have ever used. They just bore holes straight through deer without opening up. They don't even kill groundhogs good. I had better peformance killing deer with 22-250 ackley ,than with the bergers. I myself am a berger bullet dealer and i can say out of the bullets i shoot they are the worst, but their B.C is good. I won't be using the bergers for hunting anymore, I just can't stand and more inhumane kills. Thanks Reed

I shot my deer with one this year (30/185) and it's deader'n a stick. Dropped where it stood. Last year's deer got shot with one and it ran about as far. Straight down. Like with any bullet, it helps to hit something substantial.
