+1 for Nosler Ballistic Tips.

I had a load for my great grandfather's 7.62x51mmR that was about 1400fps (the gun was over 100 years old) and the 150 g nostler ballistic tip opened up like an orchid and put a big doe down in 3 steps. The bullet was recovered in the hide on the opposite side of the carcass- great big Wisconsin doe... I still remember how heavy she was trying to load her up. It was after dark and I was cold and tired and my buddies were not hunting that day. It was a memorable day and that old rifle will never see the field again, honorably retired.
