I'm guessing they handed them out like candy at the SHOT show and now realise they don't have anymore and decided to charge for them.

su37, did they charge you?

Yes they did!

I called them up about it and the lady said "it depends"
"Talk to Eric", Eric is unreachable, I keep getting his voice mail.

Re: Berger bullets on big game...

I just reached Berger, they said they would be coming out with VLD hunting bullets in 338, 250's and 300's were on the agenda.
I asked them about shooting game at close range they said their bullets would punch right on through.

To those who have the video, what did you think after seeing it?

Re: Berger bullets on big game...

I thought the video was a good watch. Kinda reminded me of Best of the West. Quite a few LR kills on deer and elk out to 800-900 yards or so.
I've limited my use of Bergers to coyotes/deer only. Still dont know if I truly trust them on elk/bears. According to Berger, should have no worries. Me personally like to have a little tougher bullet then that for elk/bears. Every Berger fired into wet newspaper looks like a mangled piece of lead and weighs no more then 30% of its original weight.

I feel cheated...no hat! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

BTW the Bergers are indeed the bullets the guy from best of the west uses exclusively Remmy.

I think he said that on the DVD...I think! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
