I have no idea how the bullet penciled through at the shorter distance unless it was going too fast and exploded within the first few inches and a piece of shrapnel exited causing it to look like a pencil hole, or just a bullet with a jacket that was too thick (possibly a 95gr target bullet got in there by mistake)
I was thinking the same thing. Maybe the hollow point wasn't hollow?

Re: .243 with 95 bergers

I agree with yall. I used to run the 95's in a 243 for whitetail in Ky. They killed like lightening. If I get another 243 in the future I suspect I will continue to use them. Although addmitedly I'm on an AMAX kick at the moment but I can tell you on smaller thin skinned whitetail/antelopeish stuff the 95 bergers are the ticket. I even used to shoot them from a 243 encore pistol
