Berger bullets on big game...

I'm looking into using Berger VLD bullets.

Have any here used them on big game?

I'll be shooting a 264 win mag, 9 1/4 twist.
I know the 130's will be fine for this twist but I'm wondering if the 140's will work just fine as Berger
says to use a 9 twist. I'm thinking they will, but want to hear from any experience here.

Thanks,

You should be able to stabilize the 140 with a 264 win mag. Just give it a try. Here is a link to a post I wrote up on another site about Berger bullets on game.

Re: Berger bullets on big game...

Here you go off their website. I have not tried them for hunting but others here have.

.................................................. ...................Hunting Bullets........................................... ...


The MATCH VLD bullets are proving to be the most lethal big game hunting bullet available. The VLD design incorporates a sharp nose that allows the bullet to penetrate up to 3 inches before it starts to expand. This delayed expansion results in a wound channel that is deep inside the vital area of any big game. After the bullet starts to expand it will shed 80% to 90% of its weight into the surrounding tissue traveling as deep as 18 inches. This results in a massive wound cavity that creates the greatest possible amount of tissue damage and hemraging. This massive and extensive wound cavity result in the animal dropping fast. Our bullets don't poke through like an arrow but instead expend all of their energy right where it is most effective, inside the animal. Bullets that poke through so that they can cause a blood trail result in a hunter tracking a wounded animal. Using the Berger VLD will result in an animal that goes down fast so you can enjoy the results of your hunt without having to track the wounded animal after the shot. You owe it to yourself to see how accurate and deadly the Berger VLD will be on your next hunt. Call 714-447-5456 to request video proof of these results in the field.

Nice dvd, just e-mail them or call them. It is free.
