Has anyone shot an elk at medium ranges with the vld hunting bullet? The vld is supposed to penetrate 2-3 inches and then fragment. The school of thought is that you want weight retention in a big game bullet. In a magnum caliber like a 300 win a hit at close to medium ranges might cause the bullet to explode when it hits bone I have had this happen with other bullets. I am not strictly a long range hunter I will shoot at any reasonable range which for me is under 600 yds . Tell me hour story.
