My findings are the 140 gr ELD M does not expand reliably on vermin yet the 147 ELD M does. It makes little sense but that is exactly what I have found. I also share this experience with a couple of my friends who have experuenced the same. 

That's interesting has anyone sectioned them to compare jacket thickness

I cross-sectioned a 140 Amax and a 140 ELD M and 130 TMK respectively. You can see the ELD M has a narrower gap between the copper jacket at the tip insertion point. I imagined that this caused the jacket to sometimes fold in rather than outwards creating a through and through impact/exit scenario on small quarry. Note the HUGE tip insertion diameter in the TMK. They expand very violently.
