So there have been some reports of Berger bullet failures, go look for them and you will find there has never been a bullet made that never had a failure of some kind.
I agree, but I haven't saw that with bergers, I'm not talking large bodied deer either, I'm talking mature bucks that weigh in at 125#, and the bullet doesn't make it inside the chest cavity, how can you have a DRT shot if all your getting is splash wounds?
These bullets are supposed to penetrate 4" then quikly expand, but as you can see the one in the pic I posted never made it 2" total, and the 2 approaching 500 yards were no better even after shedding 300 yards worth of velocity.
I have taken 29 deer with the accubond from 300 yards to over 1300, of those 4 have taken a step after impact.
I've had 4 hits with the berger and none have been DRT, nor even close.
