I love Berger's. I shoot them in both my 25-06 and my .308. My experience has been very positive. They are, by far, the most accurate rounds for my 25-06, and I tried almost every round made. In my .308 they have been very consistent and have taken many axis, several WT, and a whole slew of African game, including waterbuck, kudu, Bushbuck, blesbok, wildebeest and zebra.
That being said, I found that in very high speed light rounds (25-06), they work better at distance. At short ranges under 100 yards, the 25-06 tends to either pass through or explode shortly after impact, causing massive damage. Some years ago, when culling does, I had one darn near blow the far side leg off and another blow heart and guts out of a fist sized exit hole. But again, these were close shots at 60-70 yards and only with the 25-06.
Never had an issue with longer shots or with the .308 - well, I take that back. One time with the .308 I took an extreme quartering shot and was off the mark (my bad). The bullet hit the scapula and "ricochet" down and back and exited the very bottom of the belly, spilling guts. But this was probably due to poor judgement, rushed shot, and a bad shot - not so much the bullet.
In Africa, my PH was very skeptical and didn't want me to use them - but since it was all I brought.... but the end of the trip, the PH changed his mind and grudgingly admitted they worked pretty good.
