Has anyone compared the Weatherby select and the select plus in the 257 Mag ?

I've used the Weatherby Spitzer 100 Grs, and GA deer never complained.  My son shot a big body (about a 275 lbs) white tail, and the deer dropped where he stood.  Meat damage was minimal, and what I was expecting.  All the deer shot with my 257 Wby have been shot behind the shoulder. The farthest distance we used the 257 has been about 180 yds.

Good info Roger. Looks like the select plus are premium bullets?
