I responded earlier.
I'm using 210gr VLD's in a 300 WM. They were running a little slower on my recent trip (see pvanwyk's story on a Kalahari hunt) only around 2800 fps.
Obviously springbuck pose no real test, but a Gemsbuck bull not perfectly hit was pretty messed up and a second shot put him down almost immediately. Range was quite short - around 150 yards.
Lungs were shredded. The bullet didn't "act like a bomb", even hitting the shoulder.
Eric, are those videos available free of charge again?
