    I thank the day I swithched to Bergers several years ago. Not one lost or tracked animal since. 13 Big game animals from 200 to 1285 yards this season alone and counting. None took more than a couple steps, most went straight down. I like destroyed vitals, doesn't leave much to run on.

    Here is a thread of the testing I did this year. Might be of interest to people trying to decide what they want from their bullet. The link will start in the middle whith the actual field testing on game animals including photos of exits and all data from each shot. Gets graphic but these are actual hunting situations with real world kills on antelope deer and elk. Note the penetration on the 200 yard Bull was around 26" diagonally. Not too shabby.
