Berger VLD Target Grades for hunting??

got a question on the berger vld target grade bullets? i have a bunch of them and was just wondering if anyone out there has used them for hunting? i know they say on the box not to use them but i have killed a lot of game with the SMKs and was just trying to save some $ if they will do the job. If anyone has any input i would greatly appreciate it.

thanks

Re: Berger VLD Target Grades for hunting??

I had the same question so I loaded up both for a cow elk hunt last December. I shot my cow at 560 yards. The first shot was with the hunting VLD, it hit her a little low in the chest. She didn't go right down so I dropped in a target version and hit her about 4 inches above the first shot and she dropped. Both bullets exited. Entrance holes, exit wounds, and internal damage looked the same for both bullets.
