Used this for the first time this year and 3 whitetail fell in their tracks. Two of them were shot behind the shoulder and both had a caliber size entrance wound and a quarter size exit wound, with massive internal damage..One was shot at 30 yards and the other at close to 175 yards..The third deer was shot through both shoulders, the bullet held together and again produced an exit wound about the size of a quarter..As for accuracy, in my Ruger American, it punched a 7/8" group of 3 shots at 100 yards, that group size could probably be shrunk with a quality rest. - HOWARD
I've been shooting the 140 Grain version of this for a couple of years at white tail from a Remington 700. This stuff is deadly. Seems to hit the deer harder than anything else I've used. The deer just drop. - J. O.
Have had good experiences with this round on cow elk x 4, all more or less broadside, hitting either from above or below. Has passed through in each case, large exit wound, good damage inside (4-5"' hole in lungs). Has shot reasonably well in both a Rem 700 and a Win 70 (Sporter LT). Not quite as accurate as some cup and core bullets, but close, and reliable on game in my experience. Does not seem particularly sensitive to temperature differences -- a good thing. - B. S.
A lightweight, fast, accurate bullet. If you are the kind of hunter who prefers shot placement over brute force, this bullet is just the ticket. I have hunted whitetailed deer in South Carolina for over 15 years and never used anything but Remington 100 gr. PSP in my Browning A-Bolt. Longest shot was 218 yards, instant kill. To be honest though, most of my shots are within 100 yards. Although I've had to track a few lung shots, most shots are directly in the heart or head and the target always drops dead before my eyes. In very low light, I do notice a substantial fireball coming out of the muzzle of my gun that momentarily disrupts the F.O.V. through my scope. - T. E.
