I have shot Amaxs for years but I have some 210 bergers that are shooting great in my 300 rum . I was wandering if I could get your feed back and success on how well this bullet performed on deer ,elk, house cats:D . Pictures would be great . Thanks for reading .

Killed a mountain goat and two black bears with that bullet out of 300 Win Mag.

They work well, but I'd recommend them for 400 plus yard shots, rather than the in your face shots.

I finished off a black bear with that bullet from about 20 feet. Bear laying on side, hit in the brisket, no part of the bullet ever reached the spine, let alone exit out the top of the back. Exploded like a bomb and shrapnelled into itty bitty pieces. Instant death, but the impact at 2900 fps was more than where this bullet operates the best, in my opinion.

I could have shot a couple of dall rams with the bullet, but they were within 450 yds and I didn't particularly want the meat damage, so I used a 200 Nosler accubond on the one and a 180 Nosler E-tip the next year.

Goat was at 720 yds. Worked fine. Black bears at 425 yds. I carry a second load for the closer shots and use the 210 VLD for longer range work. They're an accurate bullet in my 300 Win Mag and 7mm Rem Mags, high BC, and open at relatively low velocity, so they're splendid for long range work IMO.

Loads of game taken with them! I've taken two elk and one deer wtih them. 125 yards, 752, and 1188. It's a cliche', but all three dropped where they stood. This has been beat to death. Run a search, you can read 'til your eyes bleed. You can find my pics here.

Personally, I am completely convinced. Accuracy has been astounding. Terminal performance, all any bullet can do. Very effectively dead.

Why would anyone using Amax's need reassurance about a Berger?

LOL I guess I've been reading to much junk on the internet:) Dead is dead I'm going to have a ball with the bergers.

Thanks for all of your replies.
