They are excellent target bullets but I doubt that small varmints will know the difference.

You might try "flaring" the nose on a few. I did this with some 6mm BR bullets and they blew up on varmints like Ballistic tips.

J-4 is an excelent jacket for a varmint bullet

Re: Berger bullet question

Go-Faster,

What will you be shooting them in? In a 22-250 or Swift you will get violent pops on vermin. In a 222 or 223 class round you will not get the violent pops but they will still work well at dispatching small critters.

Accuracy is key in varminting and these should perform well for you in that area as well!!
