As for the bergers and Amax, have enough people put these to the test in the field to now reliably say they are "proven" game bullets? A while back I kept reading a lot of mixed reviews as to thier actual terminal performance...(some people argued they were perfect, others would say were target bullets and couldn't humanly be counted on to always put down an animal in its tracks) ..... but those BCs sure are tempting.
Here's a recent Thread with user experiences posted on the Hornady Amax. The Amax fits into the camp of the very long range game bullet better than your closer range bullet of choice.

Re: Looking for advice on Bullets

All big game I have ever shot except my first doe has been with either an A-max or Berger VLD. The amax will expand well at low impact velocities. Haven't tried it in any big magnums. I use in it my .308win. I use 210 VLDs in my 300 win mag and ackley mag. The bergers are devestating! But not one animal I have shot with the A-max wa left alive either.
"Out of range" is a theoretical concept as far as I'm concerned. Send it!
