Re: Opinion on Berger .338
They shoot the same size groups in my Edge and the same POI as the SMK. They have a slightly higher BC and expand better, so for most critters, I would rather take more damage and less windage. I am running them at 2727FPS with any where from .3 to .65 MOA. I will say that on a very large moose I am thankful the bullet hit rib bones and not shoulder bones. I feel that if the shoulder was encountered, things could have gotten UGLY. For anything smaller such as elk, I would be more enthusiastic about them. For large moose, I am anxiously awaiting the 300 grain ACCUBOND.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
