    I said I would post picture of how those 140 grain Berger VLD Hunting bullets perform on my wife Mule Deer hunt. These picture show that those Berger work!. My wife shot a nice Buck this morning at 241 yards with my 264 Winchester magnum. The load was:
    Retumbo
    Winchester Brass
    Federal 215M
    COAL 3.300
    71.5 grains
    Velocity 3,215 fps
    group .185
    in both picture you can see the damage, the buck drop just like in those Greybull precision videos. the top picture show the entrance hole and bottom picture show the heart(what left) and lungs.
