Default 40 gr Ballistic tip

I have yet to load any but have a friendwants some loaded.They say that the 40 in 22-250 is going so fast that it just liquifies all the enternals and there is no exit hole...is this just hype or does it really perform like that on Varmints??Anybody load or use them ??

Maybe it is hype. But I can see it 'liquefying' some internals. Depending on the size of the animal. I've seen deer hearts shot with 270s and 30-06s that were liquified. I think it has a lot to do with when the bullet impacts.
