I really like the way the Berger shoots... Would you have a problem at 100yds with the Bergers on Elk? (closest thing to a moose I have shot) Some people say once you stretch out the Berger (slow it down) then it does good. Just worried about coming around the bend in the river and seeing THE moose 90yds away... The Yukon only comes around once a year for me...
I understand. Here is the scoop, if I was pushing a 140 Berger to ultra high velocity I would not recommend it for shots under 100 yds. But a 300 gr Berger OTM at 2800 MV... No problem even at 50 yards. This is why use the largest bullet I can get. I send fragments into the vitals and destroy them and the 1/2 or so that is left blows a nice hole out the other side. I have never recovered one at any range.
Have you seen this thread?
Lets see your berger kills!
Toward the end there is a pic of one recovered from a 25-06. Looks perfect to me.
I don't want to talk you into anything. Use what you are confortable with. It is your hunt. But don't believe the BS!! I have plenty of Berger kills and I know first hand. My experience has been way worse with other bullets not expanding. I need to get out and prove how far one of these 300 Bergers will penetrate by taking a 3/4 shot or something. But I am not typically an azz shooter. I can tell you this, no elk has held one for me yet broadside, even under 300 yrds.
