^^^This, if you were doing something like trying to poke one at 1200yds or something (not that they'd let you) I would probably give the Berger the nod... These bears are tough, use the Barnes, break bones & put the bruin on the ground permanently. The recent reviews of the Berger have been VERY intriguing, but they weren't shooting Brown Bear, they were shooting the type of animals that Brown Bear EAT
(well, they could)
I can offer this: As I weight sort Barnes (TTSX), the consistency is fantastic, I have yet to measure the bearing surfaces for consistency, but due to their manufacturing process, I am not too concerned.
LTLR on here uses Barnes for long range to wonderful success & it has been noted that their listed BC's may (I said may), be well on the conservative side, which is a nice change....
I am in NO WAY trying to trash Berger, I just cannot recommend them for dangeous game.... will they work? Probably, but what are you going to do if you have to go into the alders after your bruin with a mag full of match bullets?
