Youare correct, long range hunters were sucessfuly useing the Bergers for years and Berger decided to captilize on a new market for their bullets.
Sierria will never reccomend their bullets for hunting as long as the military is using their bullets in the sniper rifles.
range it,check the wind, dial in correction, aim and only one shot
