Heres one more for ya. Why don't you go to the dentist and get some teeth so you can chew your meat instead of drinking it through a straw after using the "berger blender"
That one made me laugh.

Just bring the butcher paper with on the hunt and pack it out 2lbs per package. Freezer ready when you get it home. As long as you don't want steaks.

PS.
Nothing against Berger bullets, just laughing with the joke.

Here is a vid of some early shots at 1000 yards behind my cabin. I have since shot about 300 more bullets down the tube with better accuracy.

Off topic...but just a friendly suggestion for 500mag_guy...

Try some 200 grain Nosler Accubonds is that 300 Ultra...they'll kill em just as dead without all the mess.

Sorry about the late reply, I am shooting a Savage 338 lr hunter with 94 gr of retumbo and .030 off the lands. I was getting a mv of 2770 out of the factory 26" barrel. This was going to be a beginner rifle to see if I like the lr shooting thing. I am now fully addicted and cant believe the accuracy out of this stock rifle. I will have a little more fun with it this year before I step up to something of better quality. I am going to have to back off on the powder a bit because the new keg lot is burning hotter and showing signs of pressure.
