Berger bullets


Well-Known Member
Just wondering: has anyone used Bergers on deer? They claim on their website that they're suitable, even though they're match bullets... ?

Or is it a case that they're sold in the UK as match bullets, so use on game is verboten?

The MATCH VLD bullets are proving to be the most lethal big game hunting bullet available. The VLD design incorporates a sharp nose that allows the bullet to penetrate up to 3 inches before it starts to expand. ...

(I know Sierra don't recommend their Match Kings for hunting)

I had a few 155gr VLD's that I had loaded. Very accurate, wanted to try them on deer but used them up on long range crows. :D
I'm sure they will work. Cut open a few different bullets to see copper thickness and just look inside.

I know the 155gr a-max is used quite often on deer. I've only shot a fox
with them and it worked less violent than expected. Maybe it's more important that impact speed and bullet design suit.
Others use cast lead bullets, imagine.
