Re: Berger 185 VLD short range performance

Thanks Kirby,the gun is everything I hoped for and shoots phenominally well.As good as it shoots the 185 VLDs,it has no problem (as long as I do my part) keeping five shots with the 210 SMKs under an inch at 300yds.Im going to try the 210 VLDs as soon as I get some,it just seems to love the Bergers.Thanks again and I cant wait to get started on the next projects with you.

    [ QUOTE ]
    i agree with B-Bob. a gun that shoots everything is simply a testament to good components, but more so to another great assembly from "Mr. Smith"

    Agreed 100%! I have no doubts about the smiths talents and attention to detail and quality.Midway through the project I was contacted by him and was informed of an issue with the reamer/chambering.He told me what was going on and told me what needed to be done to resolve the issue,and went what I believe to be the extra mile to assure quality in the highest degree.Ft Shaw will be the birthplace of my next two rifles also.

    Congrats on you and your lady's success! I had to postpone all my work with the 185 gr Bergers because I ran out playing on paper. That's ok because I have 1200 of the 175 SMKs ready to go with my Sendero sighted in at 300 yards also. I hope to duplicate your results myself!
