    I have been shooting the berger 210 with good results. I use to shoot the sierra matchking 168 with great results for longrange hunting. I then had a 1in9 twist put on my gun and switched to the 240 matchking. pushed it at 3050 but the 240 would not open up on game at over 400 yards, i am wondering with the shape of the 210sierra being more like a vld shape if anyone has had experience with this bullet on game. any info would help.
    Thanks,gun)

    What cartridge are you shooting and what game are you hunting?
