Yeah.... They blew up and a spaceship was hovering over head to collect the vapors of copper and lead. It was the alien craft that sucked the life out of these two elk.

These two are proof that a fragmenting bullet will sometimes cover your butt when you screw up.

Thank you for the kind words. I want to say I would never let a hunter pull the trigger if I was not confident it would be a clean kill. I have hunted with all these people before.

    re: Comparing the Berger 210 VLD to the 215 Hybrid

    Seen this buck 3 days ago and been looking for him again every evening. Tonight he was in love chasing a doe and it got him in trouble. I thought he was a lot bigger than he was but even with the ground shrinkage I will take him 3 days before season closes. He was on the next ridge and I shot him 15 minutes before shooting hours close with the NPR1 reticle on 22X no illumination @ 857 yards.

    The facts:
    300 win with a 215 Berger Hybrid
    857 yards
    impact velocity= 2107 fps.
    energy = 2120 lbs.
    bullet exited with 1 1/4" exit
    DRT!!

    Exit and placement pic




    Lungs not looking too good and hart was perforated too.. Yum!




    Hero pic in the head lights after a drag out in the dark




    The old junky 300 win with 215 Bergers is 17 and 0

    Broz, I have really enjoyed reading your posts. You and your 300 win r a biggame ninja.... haha. I hope to one day have the confidence to pull off half the shots you guys do. Still have a box of 215's to try in my 300 ultra....... Must be way behind the eightball cuz ive just recently got my load work done with the 210's. Either way glad I went with berger. Dan

    I don't know your rifle specs but I am betting it would be a good choice. If you like what you have read here.
