I am really anxious to see the results of the Bergers on game. With the test I did at 1180 yards I am very encouraged.

Good luck!

    I could certainly see how one would be concerned with that bullet performance. That's kinda crazy.

    On a side note, would you be interested in sharing your load that got you 3120FPS w/300SMK??? That is flat screaming for a 300SMK out of a 27 inch barrel! Care to share please

    Broz, you should try to open up that exit wound a little, can't really see where the bullet exited...

    Just a "flesh wound" on that 820 yard goat, just put some dirt on it and he should be fine.

    I know.... Lost 1/2 the shoulder on the entrance side, but all the ribs on the other side.

    Oh well, who eats antelope ribs anyway? Ha!

    Would it help if you trimmed the meplat. Would the slightly larger hole it creates help expansion? I know it would drop the bc a small amount but it would also uniform the tips. Just a thought.

    Great shot! I've loading 250grn GameKings because I could be shooting elk as close as 150 yards this year.
