Berger 6.5mm 140 VLD\'s

Does anyone have personal experience with Walt's 140 gr 6.5mm VLD in the 6.5-284 for hunting large Montana deer? What do you think?

I havent shot any critters with them yet, but few weeks ago shooting at 1000 with my 6.5-284, at a piece of 3/16" steel, and water filled soda bottles, they were punching thru the steel, and didnt blow up water bottles very well, the ones i recovered from the ground didn't open at all and pentrated about 1 foot, I think they will just pencil thru deer, but then again sometimes bullets act a little differenly in animals.
