I started using the Barnes expander 250 gr in 50 cal this year. I didn't get the chance to take a deer with them but I shot them into milk jugs at 50 yards. If I remember right it went through 4 of them and stopped in the 5th. Expanded into 6 petals very equally. Although that isn't the same as shooting a deer with them, I was impressed.
