Re: bergers and short range hunting
Not the same scenareo but I took a rut crazed 8pointer this past fall with the 308 cal 168 berger vld hunting bullet with my 30-06 and 56 grains of H414 at around 2800 fps. It was broadside shot at 50 yards bullet entered between rips liquidfied the lungs broke off side rip on way out and left half dollar size hole. The deer ran about 30 yards the same direction the doe he was chasing went before he collapsed. The blood trail looked liked graffitti with a spray can, if I needed it, but he died within sight of the stand, in fact I could follow the blood trail from the stand if I wanted too. The only meat lost was rib meat.
Not sure how the .284 cal bullet would fare under faster speeds, but it should only be 100+ fps faster or so. From what I have read on others experience is stay off the shoulder inside 100 yards and you will be fine.
Hope that helps,
