Maybe the guy that kills more elk with Bergers. Maybe the guy that kills more elk with Solids.
Truth is, there are no two shots that can ever be the same. Angle, velocity, placement, animal size.
If people would shoot more accuratly, and place the bullet decent we would never have these discussions. But it never fails, it is too easy to blame bullets for poorly placed shots. My favorite is the ones that were " Placed Perfect" but we never recovered the animal. ???? I have done my share of hunting just like everyone else. I can honestly say that every bullet I placed well was either DRT or a short track. If I didnt place it so well I had a bit more tracking. But there has been a few times were I was on the edge of poor placement and the Bergers saved my azz by still damaging vitals.
Different designs and choice. But I have seen plenty of Barnes fail too when not placed well or didnt expand for what ever reason. I can not change the haters mind, and do not wish to, and they will not change mine. I know what I can place well and that is king to me, and it is working. Just like solid shoote prefer what they like too.
Over and out.
