I, like I'm sure many others, have followed this thread as close of closer than any I've ever followed. Partially, because I enjoy reading Jeff's write ups and the other part because I wanted to see how these Bergers performed on game.
I may not know Jeff as well as some of you but I know him well enough to say he is a no BS dude! Even if you don't agree with him, you can ALWAYS count on Jeff's opinion to be truly fact based. Jeff never puts any kind of "spin" on what he posts to make himself or the product he is writing about look better than it really is. He writes it up how it truly happens. No more, no less. Which is probably why I followed this thread as closely as I did.
I have to be honest, before now, I was never a big fan of Berger bullets on game. In fact I wasn't that big of a Berger fan at all. I never understood why so many were "drinking the Kool-Aid" per say. Wellll, I can honestly say, Jeff and a couple others have made me a believer. That's not to say I think these bullets are "magic". I certainly believe there is and always will be exceptions to any rule and NO bullet is going to be the best at everything but I think we can say these Bergers have proven themselves over a pretty wide range as a hunting bullet. Both, near and far!
Jeff, I know you don't do this because you're looking for any awards or notoriety. In fact, it wouldn't surprise me if this post makes you feel a little uncomfortable but myself, as well as many others, believe you've earned it. You Sir, are truly and embassador to our sport and I'm glad to say I know you.
I can only hope you fill as many wolf tags as you have game animal tags. Actually, I want you to fill 10X's as many wolf tags!!!
