I used the 200 gr. JHP rounds for deer hunting and these rounds were great in my Ruger rifle with an 18 inch tube. One deer taken at 85 yards. Good entry and exit wounds with great expansion. Took a doe with a Ruger RedHawk at 62 yards with same results. Very consistant and outstanding performance. I will use nothing else form now on. Hunting was done in northern Indiana in November of 2008 season. - T. S.
