You could very well be right! In that case I will say that I have reloaded 100 gr. Sierra's for two different shooters on our hunting property. Where I am hunting in Georgia we have a good population of deer and are starting to get overrun with hogs. I and several other shooters have been thoroughly impressed with the performance of this bullet. We have not recovered any (I like pass throughs) and by the way animals that have been shot expire we are apparently getting excellent expansion and the bullets are holding together. Two years ago one young huntger took what I would estimate to be a 175 pound hog with a shot that was a bit far back. It moved about 10 feet and expired, complete pass through. I am loading them in front of mil. surp 4831 a grain or so off the top listing.
