    Took the 6.5-284 out this morning to see if I could get something with it. I had a nice little buck come out at 458 yards. I decided to take him since I havn't killed anything with this gun yet. I hit the deer and he only went around 20 yards. I can't believe the damage this little bullet did. By the way I'm shooting 140 gr. vld at 2956.

    Entry or exit side??? I've been using the Bergers for a couple years. So far I'm satisfied.

    That's the exit hole the entry was behind the shoulder but it was quartering away. Always used smk and amax but very happy with this bullet.
