It shouldn't be

I wouldn't worry about the lack of VR.  I only have a Tamron 200-500 (no VR) but as long as you keep the shutter speed up you can get good results.  I'm guessing you had a soft copy of the Sigma or your shutter speeds were just too low.  I'm sure the Nikon 300 F4 is sharper then my lens.. I always shoot handheld and have many shots well under the rule that are sharp enough for me...   These are well above the rule...
