7mm RUM & Berger 180's

I need to load some 180 VLD for a friend who is going on a Deer hunt in December. The only locally availble bullets are the match version not the hunting version. Is there a big difference in construction? Should I overnight some of the hunting bullets to be safe?

Help would be appreciated!

Thanks

Match and Hunting are the same bullets. It is the Target bullets that have the thicker jackets and not appropriate for hunting.
