Re: match bullets for deer
The problem is that the animal obviously suffered! How do you think it would feel to sit with a hole in your lungs gurgling blood with every breath. I too would be sick with myself if I found that I had wounded an animal that way to have it slowly die. I feel bad for the poster but thank God he at least has some compassion!
This is very similar to the recent post about the huge hog that took numerous shots over a span of 3 hours!! That is disgusting. People that don't feel at all for the animal's suffering do nothing but fuel the anti's that are trying to end our great sport. To have people boasting about torturing an animal like that hog is disgusting. Now a compassionate hunter feels bad because the bullet he used was "MARGINAL" at best for killing deer and you flame him for it. Every animal, even a disgusting pig, deserves a quick and painless death.
To the original poster on Berger's website they break there bullets down as
Target: short range - Long range
Hunting: Varmint - Big Game
The only 6mm Big Game rated bullets in 6mm are 95gr, 105gr, and 115gr VLD. All of these are listed as Match bullets by Berger. I assume they have done some testing or know the construction of their bullets that will lead to suitable big game bullets. I would suggest you try one of the heavier VLD hunting bullets.
Now it's time fore me to go. The Autumn moon lights my way.
