Long Range thick skin bullets

Had a moose hunt go bad when shot at less than 100 yards with a berger 250 at 2900 fps. A friend of mine just shot a moose three times and the bullets did not perform. They expanded to rapidly thus not making it to the goodies. Well since I load his ammo does anyone know of a good long range bullets that will perform up to buffalo size game. We are from the east not to educated on the really big game bullets.

Thanks

Where are the pictures? How was the animal brought down? I will assume 338 something and what Berger bullet was it?

No Bergers here either, except the ones on the grill this evening.

I load for 7 hunters and it's all Sierra or Barnes or they can load them themselves.

I too am curious as to what caliber, and the circumstances.

If you fill any animal with enough lead, something has to happen...or it gets lead poisoning.
