Brent......As Harperc says, if you've killed three, you are way ahead of most!
I have mixed feelings with the Bergers and a lot depends on caliber. I think they are as good as any at long range unless you compare to custom bullets. I would say Bergers are among the best for long range and would include the A-max which has more reliable expansion at lower velocities but is more explosive at higher velocities (or at least does not penetrate as far as a Berger before it expands).........Rich
p.s. I have some doubt that the 140 Berger would expand on a wolf at 1000 but then who cares!!!
