look on the positive, he keeps supporting the economy and Berger bullets( I presume that is what he wants to use for long range) are made in the USA


ohhh we got into a huge talk about that as well, he is dead set on sierra match-kings..  i dont have nothing against sierras, but i know there is much better for longer range than these..  and of course i tossed in the weigh each one and seperate them and blah blah and he says well of course  i will do that, will toss them on the beam scale and check before ...    i laughed and said go get digital if yer doing this...  man i need to record him one day  :idiot2

 :shock:

Match type bullets for hunting??  Great!! That about puts the icing on the cake.

I think I saw a similar situation on one of the TV's Hunting  series where someone uses Federal Match grade bullets for hunting. I am not familar with Federal stuff so I don't know whether this is match quality ammo with hunting bullets or the Match/Target style. Anybody got some smarts on this?

July issue of Field and Stream had rankings of different guns as far as precision is concerned. They used federal match grade bullets, and commented that they are definitely not the bullets you would want to take hunting on account of the very little, if any, expansion properties.

yes this is true, but basically anything but military ammo will deform enough to be called "expanded"..

Wolf tends to make steel core ammo, making it illegal for hunting purposes, but that aside, I think FMJ ammo deforms enough. Better do your research though. Better safe than sorry. O0

this is correct,  a friend of mine uses a .308 with copper jacketed BRONZE tipped for deer hunting, yep it is legit.  as long as there is a deformation it is usable, the steel core stuff is not allowed, BUT 99.8% of the game wardens out here are not looking that deeply into the infractions, if you are "clean" they let you alone, but now if they bust you on one thing they will fine tooth comb you.

Morax: Those Bronze tipped bullets. Remington makes a Bronze Point bullet  and load it in the 30-06 and 270 Win. They are basically a protected tip hollow point and not a solid. Is that what this guy is using.Years ago a Canadian company made something similar called a Copper Point Expanding.

Re match bullets, those HP's with the small opeming may or may not expand, the ones that are FMJ  will probably zip right thru with very little expansion 'less you hit a bison on the head.
