The Berger Hunting bullet line features VLD
match grade bullets that have the highest possible ballistic
coefficient designed for 300 yards or more. Berger recommends that the
bullets be seated to touch the rifling for best accuracy. Note,
however, that the resulting cartridge overall length may be too long for
some magazines. The VLD design incorporates a sharp nose that allows
the bullet to penetrate 2" to 3" before it starts to expand. After the
initial expansion, the bullet will shed between 40% and 85% of its
weight as shrapnel into the surrounding tissue (internal organs). The
combination between the shrapnel and the hydrostatic shock produces a
massive wound cavity within the vital area that will be 13" - 15" long.
