Match bullets for hunting?
Many shooters claim that match grade bullets should not be used for hunting. The reasons, however seem to be on polar opposites. Match bullets "don't expand" or "they shatter on impact"? Not expanding is an obvious problem, particularly for game animals, shattering can be equally as problematic depending on the game. If they do fail to expand or shatter are you bouncing projectiles off of the prairie while plinking dogs?
I should preface the above questions; I am very interested in the Fowler 115 gr. 25 cal. for a 257 Ackley project that is nearly complete and I am looking for a decisive reason to not use them in hunting situations. Also I have already invested in both Sierra and Nosler of various design, none of which are MKs.
When the shadows began to lengthen, I shouldered my rifle and plunged into the woods.
