Re: berger hunting/target bullets

This comparison probably wouldn't be a good one to do as it looks to be two different weight bullets, it would be better to compare bullets of the same weight and length.

I would think they would use the exact same jacket composition in each caliber
no matter the weight. So assuming they do, then it shouldnt matter comparing 210gr to 168 gr...but I dont know for sure....anyways see if you think the vld hunting looks thicker?
Dont know why my phone downloads pics to the computer sideways but I cant figure out how to turn them upright....sorry
