Re: NOSLER ACCUBONDS at 1000 yards on goats.
I should not even dignify your pessimistic post with a response, but I'm going to anyway because I need to defend the shooter in this case because it was not me. I was videoing the hunt for proof of distance while my hunting partner was shooting. His first shot would not have killed the doe immediately because, as I said, it was in the hip joint. So were we to give up at that point and hope she died so that we could say it was a one shot kill? I don't think so. Especially not while the video was rolling. Do you know how many people would have got upset knowing that we let a wounded animal lie? Keep in mind that the majority of people that will watch this video are already questioning the ethics of doing what 90% of the people on this forum probably do routinely. A second shot was necessary to harvest this doe, and I was merely stating that both hits showed remarkable damage for the said range. I don't care if you hit her with a 50 bmg at that range, a non-lethal shot is a non-lethal shot regardless of the bullet or caliber involved.
Man, that was a waste of internet ink. I could have been loading bullets instead of answering that post!
