Berger 6.5mm 140 VLD\'s

Does anyone have personal experience with Walt's 140 gr 6.5mm VLD in the 6.5-284 for hunting large Montana deer? What do you think?

Re: Berger 6.5mm 140 VLD\'s

I havent shot any critters with them yet, but few weeks ago shooting at 1000 with my 6.5-284, at a piece of 3/16" steel, and water filled soda bottles, they were punching thru the steel, and didnt blow up water bottles very well, the ones i recovered from the ground didn't open at all and pentrated about 1 foot, I think they will just pencil thru deer, but then again sometimes bullets act a little differenly in animals.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
