Berger vs Phone book (read rednek boolit test)

7mm Remmy Mag with 180gr Berger and MV of 2800

It plowed throught 5 2/3 semi moist phone books at 100yrds.

80.7gr of retained weight. Mostly jacket.

Pretty much what I was hoping to find.

Funny it stopped pretty much on the alcoholic page. Since I'm pretty much an addict I guess this was not surprising. Shooting addict that is.

Cool test. Thanks for sharing. Looks like the bullet performed just the way Berger says they will.

I understand your addiction completely. The only way to reduce the frequency and intensity of the withdrawal pains is to shoot more!

I would advise you to repeat this test at longer range to determine bullet performance at various velocities.

That is cool. How many total inches of penetration did you get? What did the hole through the other 5 phone books look like?

The bullet went throught 5 2/3 phone books. Semi moist books at that. I guess that is about three inches per book so roughly 14-15 inches.


Here is a pic of the back of the 5th phone book. I'm sure you recognize the guy Bo. I didn't mean to shoot him in the head

Hey Limbic, I have some 180 Bergers that I tried in my STW. Can't get them to shoot. You want to buy them or trade. I am in Flora MS. Anyone done the phone book test with a 210 30 cal Berger? I do some deer depredation shooting and man do they do a number on a doe deer in a 300 Winnie.
