Re: regarding hunting with sierra match king and 300RUM
my barrels must be different. I have had no animal take a step when my balistic tips hit the lung,..heart, etc softer areas. I usually get a huge exit wound and obliterated internals. My shoulder shots with the SMK's were more successful,..but I don't expect to "have to" shoot a certain point. If my best shot offering is the lung area,..that's what I aim for. And as stated,..once they slowed up a bit,..they did perform with excellent results. My theory is that is the hollow point was opened up some,..the close range "pencil" observation would be non-existent.
You try to get closer to the target,..and I keep trying to get further away.
