Breaking bones and continuing to penetrate deeply is a bullet trait that I want on potentialy dangerous game. I seriously dought that a promotional vides from any bullet maker will ever show any downside to their product..
I am not giving anyone a lesson or telling anyone to use certain bullets I just stated that in the test we ran the bergers penetrated as much as any other bullet except the swift which left a little hole or the barns but the pedals broke off the barns in the gel both times so I didnt mention it. They were all stopped by the last bone except the swift II it went another 3" into the next block. Which was about 4" farther than the ohters, so if I was promoting I would have promoted the swift II. I did not tell him what bullet to use, I just told him penetration would be fine berger tested them on african game, someone else wanted to know more about it so I told him to call berger, then i got snide remarks so I gave the results of the test we ran on some bullets where berger penetrated as much as the others at 20 yrds. I never said berger was the best, I said berger did the most damage, I also said they were all good bullets pick the one you feel most confident in and use it regaurdless of what anyone else says. We did these test to prove to ourselves what bullets actually did because we've heard alot about a bullet does this or that. If you dont like the results thats fine. I dont shoot the best bullet I shoot the bullets I like, I dont shoot the best rifles I shoot what I like, That is what I tell people shoot what you like not what someone else likes. We didn't spend all that money and time to test those bullets to get into arguements about it, so just forget I ever mentioned it or the results we came up with.
