Re: berger 168 vld hunting bullets.

So was the buck dead when you recovered him or did you have to dispatch him?

    Pick your favorite flavor of bullet and someone has had a bad experience. It doesn't mean it is automatically their fault. It also doesn't automatically mean a company is duping or tricking you. While I am NOT a big fan of revising threads for content (language is one thing), sharing your experience in a less emotional way (good or bad) tends to lend credibility to your point of view.

    FWIW, I put a chest shot on a doe with a 168 classic hunter last weekend. I definitely had expansion, and massive trauma, and a large exit - and I still found her 110 yards away. Crazy EWH.


    168 Berger classic hunter on 100yd deer??

    Hope your experience doesn't completely jade you to these bullets. IMHO they have their place and based on most of the feedback I read your experience was the exception, not the norm. Still sucks, but glad you harvested the animal.
    I will give classic hunter a try, thanks

    Maybe consider the 180. I have a few boxes I bought to try but the 168s are doing so well I haven't bothered with them yet.

    I removed a bunch but there were too many.

    Please don't use that language. That would make our site too much like just any other one out there.

    Thanks so much for your help.

    I have to agree !!!! I apologize and will refrain from any Expletives.

    Sorry.
