Do Berger make a 30 gr. bullet in 20 cal?

Default 20 Caliber bullets

Get yourself a box of 500 34 Gr. Varmint Extremes. They are cheap, they shoot well, they have a large HP and they don't exit.

Default ? Surface splash concerns

"Get yourself a box of 500 34 Gr. Varmint Extremes. They are cheap, they shoot well, they have a large HP and they don't exit. "

With a large HP thin skinned varmint extreme pill. I fear one would be asking for surface splash on less than ideal shot placement circumstances which are sure to crop up in the real world of calling situations. Very much like the fears of the plastic tipped v-maxes. JMHO

Default Splash

Used them and sorry your worry is for nothing I've had no splashes with them at 4000 fps.

I just don't shoot them faster because this seems to be my accuracy node with the bullet.
But just out of curiousity how many coyotes with splashes have you shot with this bullet?

Agreed 35 Bergers work very well.

I have had great accuracy and friendly results on fur when using the 39gr Sierra BK. Anyone else having good or bad results with the Sierra? It has a high BC, and is appealing to me over the 35gr Berger for that reason.

Use the same bullet and never have had a so called splash. Entrance and no exit, head on in chest or broadside into lung cavity. Bill K

Another vote for 35 Bergers.

Kenbro, Berger made 20cal 30 grain bullets until November, 2012. There's a few boxes still around but not many. Too bad, my 20VT loves 'em.

thanks for all the replies everyone. i have two loads that shoot great out of my rifle, one is with the 35 gr. berger and the other is with the 39 gr. sbk. think i will use the sbk first because of the high BC and move to the 35 gr. bergers if hide damage is bad with the sbk. now if i could just get my rifle to feed rounds reliably i would be in heaven.
