Because, uhh, they kill things. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Shot a yearling buck Sunday at 389 yards with the 210 JLK from the Wolf. That poor thing died within 10 yards of the hit - 3/4" hole on exist and lungs in tatters when I pulled them out.

Shot a doe Tuesday morning at 225 yards with the 105 A-Max from my 6mm Remington. Died within 5 yards of the hit. No exit wound, top of heart and one lung obliterated.

Chalk up two more kills for these poor, pathetic projectiles!

Nice shots. [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

Maybe you can get two or three of them deer to stand side by side, and tell me what kind of penitration I'll get on a Moose with that JLK. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

I know Black Bears don't like to get stung in the spine with the 178 A-Max. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

I don't believe it, I don't believe it; I don't believe it.

Anyone who believes that match bullets are effective at harvesting big game probably believes in Santa Clause too.

Wonder what I'm getting this year. I've been good. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Re: And why you should not hunt with the JLK or A-Max...

I guess someone didn't tell our Missouri deer that A-Max couldn't kill them lol. I took a buck at 375 yards with my 6.5-284 using 140 gr. A Max. I purposly shot thur the shoulders to make sure I wouldn't have to track him and I didn't. The bullet pentatrated(sp) both shoulders and mushed his lungs.Had a doe come out at 480 but wouldn't hold still long enough for a shot before it got dark.Had she,I think the outcome would have been the same. Oh well, we still have a doe season coming in Dec. [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]
