My 2c I would rather hunt with a premium bullet like Barnes, Nosler AB or partition giving me a 2” grouping than shoot a Berger VLD with a .5 grouping. The target on most animals are 6” and larger. The tight grouping means nothing if there is no penetration. Why would you put the hunt success in a bullet that might just fail due to its construction. It is one of the reasons why we have the bullet performance data base thread as you can see how bullets really perform. It might be a good idea to get input from a PH/guide/ tracker and ask for their opinion.
