No sign of expansion at all.
After that experience, I used only Nosler 250 PTs in my .338 Win. Mag.
From what's been posted lately, people are successfully using the Berger Match bullets on game, but I wouldn't use those Sierra MatchKings on game.
Inside 300 yrds you wont get many people saying its an ideal bullet choice, its just going too fast and will more than likely blow up before hitting vitals, past that the SMK has and will continue to be an effective bullet choice for many long range hunters, until the 307 Amaxs comes out, they had better make millions!!!
Yes Ive used them for hunting,light skined game, very effective, some may say the 250 gr is all you need out to 1000 yrds, you choose
