Just wanted to start out buy saying hi fellas. This is my first post on this forum.
I tried some 155gr. Berger's in my 30-06 today and the results were great. The rifle is a win. 1885 high-wall with a 28in tube. My favorite rifle. At 200 yds they shot under a group you can cover with a dime. At 500 yds it shot a group you can cover with a quarter. Probably even better with someone else behind the gun. But needless to say I'm very happy with these bullets!

No needed to experiment with loads then, as thats remarkable shooting @ 500yds. How many flyers is that not counting. Good shooting: sierras new 155 sound good to, but why switch now.

The only other bullets i have shot in it were hornady 150gr. SST and inter bond. The gun shoots them very well to. I never explored any passed that. I shot the SST right off the bat and stuck with them for all may playing and groundhog hunting (CHEAP bullets). I used the inter bond's for all my big game hunting. I do this with a lot of my guns because both bullets shoot the same. Same power, primer, ect. That way I don't even have to re-sight in my gun. With the hornady bullet i was getting about a 2 1/2, 3 shot group at 500 yards. My high wall is the commemorative 06, Because it was the only one i could find at the time.

If you are going to deer hunt use those Berger's. I shot a deer with a 155 VLD out of my 308 last year and you would not believe what it did to that deer. Exit hole the size of a baseball in offside shoulder. The vitals were soup. Oh! They shoot little bitty groups also.:D
