Also for sharing a well documented, accurate report.

Thanks, Jeff... The multitude of animals you have harvested with this bullet in a win mag got me looking for better mouse trap.

I have some of the Berger 180 Hybrids for my 7mm rifles, and was planning on using them for deer hunting this year, but was skeptical about close-range shots (under 150). I have been reading ALOT of folks saying the Hybrids will expand very well and stay together with a massive wound cavity (exacly as your pictures show) into wet newspapers and phonebooks. The similarity in the wound cavity of your bull and the wet phonebooks is uncanny.

Thank you for this info and write-up as it now gives me the peace of mind to shoot deer with the 180 Hybrids this year. I will also give my report once I have a chance to use them.
I don't have any experience with the 180's in 7mm, but I would suspect they will work just fine on whitetails. Look forward to your report.
