I got a 243 ackley that pops the 107's @ 3200 w/ 45 gr RE 22. My first shot at a critter was sunday night at 690 yds. A nice plump whitetail doe. Have the shot on video and smoked her right behind the shoulder....Perfect!! so I thought? After finding blood, (good blood), i jumped her up from laying down about 80 yds from impact, another 80 yds and she took one from my .45 to put her down. Kind of sucked trailing a doe after dark in a plum thicket forest. I had hit about 1 inch to 2 inches back from the boiler room. The bullet didn't expand at all. Yeah, it wasn't perfect, but it should have done the trick.
I'm gonna try the high shoulder shot this weekend and see if it works a little better.
Sure is frustrating.???????
