Re: berger vld or barnes for long range

They are both great Bergers have higher BC and more choices, what game are you after and at what range?

Berger and use a heavy for caliber offering. They are two completely different bullets, what one gives up close, the other gives up at long range. I use Bergers because they work best for me at the longest distance I will shoot, but they also do a good job up close where I can be sure of better placement.

I have done it or my own version of Eric's many times. Results have jumped off the target at times. But always there is a noticeable difference.
