Berger 95 VLD Hunting bullets

I shot some 95 gr Berger vld hunting bullets in my Cooper M22 243 today, I only fired 2 groups of 3 because of time constraints, my rifle is a 1-10 twist, the 1st group was .275 and the 2nd was .248 at 100 yards, can I assume the bullets will remain stabilized up to 500 yards? I am shooting 43 grs of RL19 with a Fed 210 primer in a 26 inch barrel. I guess I am wondering that if they are stable at 100 yards would it make sense they will be at 500?

Best way to find out how they will perform is to shoot them at your desired distances.

I'd be surprised if they weren't stable. Should be fine on a whitetail if you do your part and great on a coyote at longer ranges.

Re: Berger 95 VLD Hunting bullets

If they leave the barrel stable, they stay stable till atleast transonic flight. Not a dumb question at all, if you already knew the answer you wouldn't ask.
