I've ran a large wild game processing operation in MT, cutting over 2000 animals a year and I currently still cut about 50 head a year for extra money and the most offensive bullets when it comes to meat loss is Nosler product, PERIOD!!!
I personally shoot Berger for meat because of the lack of blood shot I have had with them, combine that with the lethality and accuracy I get more meat with the Bergers!!
Last rifle we dialed in for Bergers was a 7mm Mag, 168 Target VLD .20 of the lands H1000 powder and half moa in 12 rounds. The best the rifle has ever shot in the life of it according to the owner! Not every rifle likes every bullet, just the way it is and it's not worth dwelling on to long, it's nice that Berger is addressing the seating depth sensitivity with different bullets like the Classic hunter and Hybrid designs.
