Cauterucios for Hunting?

Anyone actually used Cauterucios for taking deer? My 7wsm shoots them remarkably well and they are very predictable. Just not sure about using them for deer. My rifle will not shoot Accubonds worth a flip, so it's use these or work-up a load for some Barnes. Input appreciated.
Thanks,
Jeff

I think Len has used the 176's for some time with great success-But confirm with him first.

Yes, I have used the C176 exclusively for deer, and one elk, for several years now. I fully endorse it. Bob C told me he uses the heavier 30 cal matchking jacket for the 7mm bullet.

So here you have a bullet with more sectional density (for more predictable penetration) than the 30 cal which itself has killed a gazillion big game animals for many, many long range hunters in recent years.

Len,

Do you have a preferred shot placement for deer with the Cauterucios and any differences in placement for up close vs. long shots?

Thanks.

Jeff

The closest I remember shooting a deer with this bullet is about 300 yards.

If I am sure of the shot, I go for the shoulder at a point where I also hit at least one lung. If if unsure, I go for a double lung shot as this is an easier target with more margin for error.

I would not hesitate on a shoulder shot at 50 yards.

Len or anyone else,
Little OT here.
Can anyone give any insight into the 7mm 180 JLK bullet for deer or elk?

Might be a good bullet for the 7mm Allen mags as they can generate a lot of stress on the J4 jackets
