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!

Re: NOT happy with the 300grMK

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!

Re: NOT happy with the 300grMK

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.
