I thought I would share some more experience with the Berger VLD's. I found a load my 300 RUM really likes, 92 grains Retumbo behind a 210 Gr Berger VLD Hunting, with Fed 215 Primers.
Between my brother and I, we killed 3 elk this year. Two bulls and a cow.
My cow was dead on the first shot. Berger hit her hard, and put her in shock. I put 2 more in her but she was dead on number 1. (150-200 yards)
My bull was running around and after the first hit, stopped and stumbled. Put a couple more in him, but similar to the cow, I think he was in shock. (100 yards)
