Re: NBT\'s for mule deer??
From the experiance I've had with the Ballistic tips , they get my vote for a good
DEER bullet. I haven't shot any of the 7mm BT's but I hit a big whitetail buck 3 yrs ago with a 180gr BT out of a 300 mag.at almost 3200fps. The shot was less than 100yds and the deer was walking almost dead away from me , the bullet hit the left rear leg , blew it up and made it far enough into the guts to make a mess , the deer dropped at the shot , I'm guessing that the shock broke his back.
At anyrate the 150gr 7mm BT has a secional density of .266 and the 180gr 30cal BT is .271 which isin't that far above the 7mm's so I'm thinking that even if you hit the shoulder that the bullet will still make its way into the chest cavity.
If they shoot good for you and you can be petient enough to get a good shot then I would use them with hesitation.
