JLK VLDs on game

From what I heard the Berger VLDs can preform pretty well on game. But what about the JLK VLDs? I believe they both use the J4 jacket, and they're VLDs so terminal performance shouldn't be too different? Any body use the JLKs on deer?

    I used some 6.5 130 JLK's from my 6.5-284 to take 2 doe antalope, one at 507 and the other at 537yds. They work very well they exited with a golf ball size hole through the ribs. The other 2 I used 139 senars and the work well the one was a head shot at 180yds she only went straight down. The other ran about 50yds and gave up with a lung shot.

    I used a .308 190gr JLK on a deer at 650 yards. Impact velocity was about 2200fps. The deer was laying down. Shot placement was a perfect double lung without ruining any shoulder meat. Upon Impact it stood up and then tipped over. Exit hole was about 1.5 inch.

    They both use the J4 jacket but is it the same thickness?
