Re: 139 Lapua Scenar
Definately not a deer bullet
I shot one deer with them, ranged the deer at 781 yards was shooting the 139's at 3250 fps from my 6.5 Gibbs. the deer was hard quartering away laying down. I lined the verticle wire up with the offside shoulder and touched the trigger. heard the bullet hit home, the deer just rolled over.
The bullet impacted the front edge of the onside ham at 2200 fps, 1/4" of the hollowpoint broke off right there, was recovered just under the hide the jacket and core separated and traveled side by side through the deer, coming to rest under the hide at the top of the offside shoulder.
damage was very little, couple of fragments hit the lungs and got the job done, but why the deer didn't get up and run off is still a mystery.
