Berger Hunting Bullets "Performance"

I have only used Berger Bullets once for Hunting. I used a 95gr VLD out of a .243 AI on a Black Bear at 211 yards. The Bear hit the ground Dead.

However, I have read and heard that some guys do not like Berger Bullets as they said that they perform sub standard when used for Hunting.

What is your opinion and Experience using Berger Bullets?

    I've heard good things, there's a pretty long thread on the 215 for wild boar somewhere on here. And yes, Reno is a fantastic city.

    This subject is more worn out than a cucumber in a women's prison.
