Think I'll stick to berger's as they open up nicely at long distances. I found none lead like to hit bone to work best which sometimes doesn't happen. I guess it like steel shot and lead shot. I still like lead shot as it hits hard. Steel tends to go right through the birds but if you hit them right it's lights out.

From what I know, monolithic bullets need faster speeds to open up and for long range hunting this can be tricky...

I am going to load up the 127 LRX Barnes when my moderator comes in. I have read good reports on them on game in excess of 600 meters.
