Re: Match bullets for hunting?
There is no such thing as a bad bullet. There is only bad applications of that bullet.
Unfortunately, many talk of bullets succeeding and failing with no reference to impact velocity, game presentation, size of game, conditions, etc. Just this is bad or good.
Bullet performance is a balance between construction, impact velocity and what you ask of it. Within their design parameters, ALL bullets do the same thing!!!!!
Match bullets work very well WHEN impact velocity has slowed down below 2400fps (some even slower). Some, like the heavy MK, can tolerate impact velocities close to 2700fps just like reg softpoint bullets.
You need to know how fast that bullet is arriving over the distances you hunt. Then what type of shots are you willing to pass up. Combine the two and you will be able to make an intelligent decision on what bullet will work for you.
If not familiar with the different bullets, just explain the type of hunting you plan, cartridge, range, presentation, bullet placement, etc. We can easily diagnose a solution.
