Yes, I understand it's a 30 cal, but which 30 cal? 300 WM, 300 WSM
, 308 Win, etc.?
I assume that bst = ballistic tip and between the Berger and the Ballistic Tip, my personal preference would be the Berger. I think the Bergers are a great long range bullet. I just prefer a bullet that remains in tact and that is why I like the E-Tips and ABs. For a cartridge like the 300 RUM, I would use the E-Tips for short and mid range shooting and a Berger or JLK VLD for long range shots because of their high BC. And I would use the higher wieght VLD for better BC... that is why I asked which cartridge you're shooting. If you are shooting a 300 WM, 300 RUM or 30.06, then I would recommend trying a heavier 210 VLD. The are a couple of benefits from shooting the heavier bullet. First of course is the higher BC which will get you farther down range and it will buck wind better. Next, in the case of the thin jacketed VLD's, your velovities will be lower and you will have more controlled expansions. Hope this helps.
