re: Long Range thick skin bullets

Looks like the reason some of us anneal the target bullets, the nose on some of the target versions are very resistant to opening.

That would have to be the conclusion, IF your position is that Berger and other target-style bullets don't fail when used on moose-sized game animals. That's not my conclusion. First bullet doesn't make it to the spinal column at 850 yd.

    Second bullet doesn't expand while entering between the ribs - a successful heart shot. Yes the bull moose did die. So maybe the hunter didn't fail after all?



    Now the member is researching bullets in preparation for next years moose hunt.
    That looks exactly like every Berger that I have recovered that was fired under 2000'........Rich
    I just looked up the velocity on JBM and if his MV was 2950' retained velocity at 850 would be approx. 1868'

    I got about 1780 fps using 500' elevation
