Re: Deer with a Hornaday BTHP Match??

I did it two years ago with a 208 grain bthp in a 300 win mag. Deer was quatering away hard at a whopping 60 yards. Aimed at offside shoulder, instant gunshot. Bullet fragmented violently causing a large short wound channel. The bullet never reached the vitals. Deer made it 200 yards leaving a massive blood trail and various organs along trail. With that said I would use it again and be smarter about bullet placement. At short ranges do not expect much penetration. Of you want to keep the shoulder meat its probably not the bullet for you.
