Re: Berger 115gr vld leathality?
All you guys have pretty much covered it, but here's my 2 bits. I shoot pretty much only hogs here in Texas, and I have seen bullets from my .458 Win Mag fail (stupid reloading choice by me); but in .25-06, 6.5-284, and .284 Win I have never had a Berger not perform as designed and advertised. From 30 to 856 yards I have never had a known failure, I have had some get back up and run off for various reasons, but no obvious failures such I have seen with Barnes tsx, Hdy AMax, or Matchkings in my paticular loadings. Internal damage on all recovered animals has been 4-6 inches penetration followed by a cone of increasing carnage ending at 12-16 inches or exit with vast leaking of fluid and/or tissue.
