Re: Berger VLD bullets as hunting bullets
Here is how Berger justifies using target bullets for hunting:
"Our bullets don't poke through like an arrow but instead expend all of their energy right where it is most effective, inside the animal. Bullets that poke through so that they can cause a blood trail are designed to result in a hunter tracking a wounded animal. Using the Berger VLD will result in an animal that goes down fast so you can enjoy the results of your hunt without having to track the wounded animal after the shot."
I really doubt that Nosler, Hornady, Speer, Barnes etc. would agree with this "pitch", but what do they know?
Somebody on another post said it best when he said that they took a weakness and turned it into a strength. Good marketing.
Of course, "as long as you believe it, does it really matter?"
They sure are accurate bullets though. Too bad they are made in Kalifornia.
