Re: Thinking of frangible .50 for whitetails.
Sorry but I guess I didn't make myself clear. I feel that a 300 Win Mag shooting FRANGIBLE ammo wouldn't have enough knock down for a whitetail.
My feeling was that at 400 - 700 yrds a fifty shooting FRANGIBLE ammo would be safer then say a 300 Win Mag shooting solid bullets (i.e. jhp). I realize that there might be more venison wastage, but I feel that the benefit from the increased safety (i.e. no danger of richcheets (sp)) would justify the increased venison wastage. I also spoke with one gentlemen that said a high chest shot would result in a minimum of venison wastage despite the frangible ammo. Thanks for the input.
