Berger Hunting VLD Minimum Expansion Velocity

I have been trying to figure out what Bergers Minimum expansion velocity on their Hunting VLD's but have not been able to figure it out. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Berger Hunting VLD Minimum Expansion Velocity

They advertise 1800 fps. I wonder though, if different size bullets expand at different velocities? They all use the same J4 jacket, so it would seem to me that expansion velociteis may differ with different size bullets?

My guess is that Eric and Bryan are at the shot show. If you bring this thread back up next week, maybe they will chime in.
