Re: Hunting with Bergers

Here's the exit on my wife's doe antelope from a few years ago. She used a 168 7mm Berger and the shot was around 300 yds, if memory serves. The doe was quartering towards us and her shot placement was perfect, right on the shoulder. The doe dropped in her tracks.

Re: Hunting with Bergers

I have only hunted with the Berger 7mm bullets being the 140grn. in my wifes 7mm-08 and their 168 grn. 7mm bullet in my 280 Ackley Imp. both have taken Large Whitetail 's and dropped them where they stand! Small entrance hole and hardball size exit wounds! These both were shot at 2800 and 3000 fps. I hope this info helps you with your question ? I would think the biggest consideration would be what type of game do you plan on hunting with them as that would be the deciding factor if they are of the right construction for the game hunted.
