Default Berger Bullet report

A couple months ago I purchased some Berger VLD hunting bullets and loaded some up. My Tikka T3 30-06 was pretty fond of 180 gr Sierra Game Kings so after some searching I decided to try the Bergers in 175 grain. All I can say is WOW do these bullet shoot. At 100 yards the first 2 downrange made a tight figure 8 with a lot of overlap. The third as soon as it went off I thought I had pulled it just a bit to the left. I was right. It landed about 1/4" left of the other 2. If I wouldn't have pulled that shot it would have likely gone in the same hole as the other 2. And the nice part is they hit the same POI as the Sierras so I don't have to change my scope settings. At least for my normal range shots (within 200 yards).
Now I can't wait to see how they perform on game.

I loaded some 130gr last year for my 270 win, I've shot only 3 hogs with them. Very impressive results, all were complete pass thru's. Two dropped in the tracks, one big boar ran about 50 yards. They do blow a hole,
