Because I prefer bullets that fragment and I want enough there to send off pieces through the vitals and still have a good portion left to carry on. This same type bullet has a better chance to expand well at longer distances where velocity is slowed down.
EDIT: PS, we killer 5 bulls and several cows last season with a 300 win. From 200 to 800 yards, an antelope at 1285 yards. That same rifle took 19 ,, antelope, deer and elk combined last season and a coyote at 700 plus. All one shot kills.
