Re: Berger .257 115 gr Hunting VLD
I don't have a Roberts but I do have a .257 WBY and I just shot the 115 gr VLD'S on deer.
I have a Rem 700 LSS with a 26" tube shooting 71 gr's IMR 7828ssc and 115gr Vld's I'm just touching 3500 fps.I'm getting just under 1 inch groups at 100yds(2 touching and one just off the other 2)
I shot a whitetail doe at 231 yds trotting at a slight 1/4 angle.The bullet entered behind the 3rd rib behind the shoulder and came out behind the off shoulder.The doe ran 50 yds and did a spin and fell over
Small .25cal entery hole and a hole about 3 inches on the way out.Inside the damage was masive.Lungs were gone,heart was blown in about 3 pices still attached to the aortas,ruptured the guts,cavity full of blood.
For such a small bullet I was impressed on the damage,I'm shure as the farther you shoot or slower vel. it will be diffrent.
Like stated before I don't think they are a elk bullet,so I'm looking at the 120 NP for that.Hope this helps
