It's not the caliber, it's the bullet
In 7mm the 140/150 TSX, 160 Accubond, or 175 Nosler partition are probably the top choices I'm familiar with. They would penetrate better than the Berger 210 in a 308 Norma. With dangerous game you absolutely need a bullet that will penetrate. Bergers may be a great killer on deer sized game but I'll bet that even Berger won't recommend them on Dangerous game. If they did I'd be shocked.
Furthermore if you do use a Berger, the faster you drive it the more danger it won't penetrate enough. I'd feel better with that 210 Berger at 308 Win speeds, 2200-2400fps, than at Norma speeds. Even Sierras would be better than Bergers. Their jackets are heavier.
Guess that is my 4c worth. I'll shut up now.
