Re: Alaskan Dall Sheep - 210 Berger VLD
Very Nice Sheep Phorwath. Congrats on a successful hunt.
I am suprised at the performance of your bullet . I have taken much game with the 210 Berger and never had this as a result. I guess I have been lucky enough to catch a rib on each shot, or a shoulder when needed on larger game. I suppose in this case a Ballistic Tip projectile would have been the answer. But I choose to shoot one bullet in my rifles and feel the Berger is best for the game I am hunting. I guess it is hard to get it all, as far as a bullet is concerned. Not enough expansion or to much. But for sure no two shots are the same when you consider all the variables of distance/velocity, toughness of hide, placement and angle.
But never the less, I am glad you secured the animal and didn't have to track him up. Good job.
