From what I have seen the 115BT expands very well but still penetrates plenty for Mule Deer?Whitetails & Varmits, a good all round bullet.

I should have put this in my first post but I am not really interested in the BT. Besides the Berger, what else would you recommend?

BT as in Bal. Tip. I thought that was the question? Anyway, none I suppose for shooting over 600 yds. if you don't want the bal. tip except for the Bergers, as the other bullets are lacking in BC except for the Speer 120 Boat Tail if they are right about their BC, which seems to be an overestimate. I have bought some but have not shot at long range yet.

I shoot the Berger 115 VLD and the NAB 110's out of my .257 Wby Mag. They both are excellent bullets.
