All of those where the Hunting ones, except maybe one because hunting version was not available.
This is the way I have been doing it as of late. No matter what version you have make sure the hollow point is clear. I have a really small hobby drill bit that is just the right size as the point of the bullet. I make sure that the hollow point is opened up until the lead core. Some of the bullets have little bits of copper closing the hole up. I just spin the drill bit with my fingers. Some of the guys that where having bullets not expand may had a closed up hollow point. Then I guess it depends on what you goals are. Long range or close.
Anything inside of 500 yards I am using the target vld rounds, 500 yards + I am going to use the hunting version vld, just to make sure that I still get good expansion at the longer distances. This will be in my 7wsm and 7saum. In my 7/300win I am just going to use the Hybrids only.
Hope that helps.
