How are the Bergers when it comes to collateral meat damage from the bullet fragmenting?

If you choose the 208 A-Max I hope you have the inventory needed. I Have not been able to find ONE box since the panic started. I check every couple of days with the big on-line boys to no avail.

Anyway, no faster than the 30-06 would start this bullet & since you are talking about a heavy Amax, I think it would do the trick at long range, just as the heavy for caliber Bergers work at long range. I think I would be more careful up close on Elk though.

Read te 100 yard vs the 1000 yard penetration test. Amazing the the VLD just exploded at the 100 yard velocity with a mere 24% weight retention, but I'm not sure the Barnes would do enough damage in some instances. They do penetrate like mad for the armor plates on pigs.
