I bought some berger 115 vld for my 25-06.....
I haven't shot them at game yet. They do a heck of a job on the paper though! Any of these that you mentioned leave an exit wound? I have shot 52 gr Watson (benchrest) for the better part of two decades at these deer. My only complaint is there was NEVER an exit wound......Course never had to trail one either....All pretty much dropped in their tracks except one that went 20yds or so, and all shots were less than 200 yds. All of them were neck and head shots. I always insisted on a head or neck due to the fact I knew there would be no exit wound. If the deer around here get off the big clear cuts, they get in to some thick thick stuff. I would like, if possible leave an exit wound so I can boiler room them if need be. I am not so sure I can head shoot them past 200 yds thus my question.
