Re: Berger VLD Hunting- first hand experience with 168gr. ?

I shoot em at only 2800fps, very accurate in my gun too. Killed 2 cow elk (450, 270 yards) and an antelope (290 yards). The elk at 450 was a high shoulder shot. It turned the heart and half a lung to stew and still exited the opposite shoulder (or some of it did). It exited the antelope with a 1 inch hole, similar to what a tougher bullet might do. I've only used them for one hunting season but none of the game even took a step. I don't plan on using anything else in my 7 mag.
