Re: Berger VLD vs Berger Match Hunting VLD
We've been using the 115 Hunting VLD, 25-06, loaded up to 3150 with R-22, 56.4 grains for 4 years and here in Missouri we don't need 300 yd shots, longest on large 10point was 235 yds. We have learned that this bullet ruins good meat, so have been making successful neck shots in 8 of the last 10 deer....
Last year the big 10 point was broadside, a neck shot put him into a summersalt, head dropped and nearly stuck his rack in the ground! Entry holes small, exit from neck growing to 4-6" diameter damage. All but one kill have been "Drop Dead Now".
My step son uses a cheap single shot, grandson a Rem 700, and I have a Mauser/custom barrel...all are 1:10 twist.
Got some "Target" VLD's we'll use for sighting in, but will stick with Hunting as they have proven deadly.
