6.5mm 140 Berger VLD for LARGE mulie bucks?
I know what most of you think about the 6.5x284 as a longrange deer cartridge but I am curious about the 140 Berger 'hunting' VLD. Do you think this is a serious mulie bullet? I say mulies, I am refering to large mature bucks. What are your thoughts on this bullet at close range and at the 1800 FPS mark? Good, bad, ugly? IME, there is a BIG difference between average mule deer bucks and mature mule deer bucks as far as size and determination.
What bullet do you recommend for the 6.5x284 for big mulies? Or is this the wrong caliber for LR mature mulies?
Give it to me between the eyes!!
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.
