Re: 280 A.I. and berger 140

I'm shooting 168 bergers out of my 280ai and they shot awesome under .25. My only think that troubles me is that they seem at least at close range, they make big exit holes. I'm going to use 140gr barnes tipped triple shocks. The 140gr bullet looks to be the best weight for the 280ai.
