Re: Berger Integrity

yep, I've had problems, (3 times out of 3) shooting .264 140's at 3160 fps from an 8 twist, impact ranges were 230, 456, and 493 yards, no bone was encountered and the bullets penetrated maybe 2" total. yet most posts say they are great bullets, I just can't accept that from what I have saw.

    Are you sure it's a 9tw, and not an 8tw?
    Have you checked the twist with a cleaning rod?
    HOLY S--T !!!!
    I have a 1 in 8 twist. Ordered a 1 in 9. I never checked it I just assumed. Now I am the ass. THANKS Mikecr.
    Ordered up some 180 SMK's. "smith says these will handle the situation.

    You just scared me. I am running them a little hotter than that in a 6.5WSM and was planning on shooting an antelope with it in a couple weeks, but probably at 700-1K yards, but stuff happens and longrange plans often end with short shot opportunities.
