Never know when your kill shot will come at less than 100 yds... more often than over 400 unless you go out of your way to shoot from afar.
I would have gone the bonded bullet thing with my rifle too, but the S.O.B. wanted flat base bullets with that 1/2" jump to the lands, so that's what I gave it. The rifle blew the head dang near off a trotting deer at 200 yards(cross hair two inches below the nose, follow and pull the trigger
) once because I wasn't about to put the bullet anywhere the the eating part. The whole off side of her melon was messed up on a rather big mule deer doe. The other kills I got with the rifle were all 1/4 mile or more so I really didn't care other than not in the meat.
