Personally, i've never had a bad experience with a Ballistic Tip on deer.
My daughter shot a buck last year with my 257 Roberts and the 115gr Berger VLD-H loaded to +P pressures.
Distance was 40 yards, put into the ribs. She said it went kinda stiff legged and fell over.
Bullet performed just as advertized. Penetrated 1-3 inches and came apart. Made a real mess of both lungs & heart. Jacket found under offside hide.

While not here in the States, Nathan Forester (www.ballisticstudies.com) claims that the 117gr Hornady SST to be an excellent performer.
