Maybe its because I am pretty new to loading, ballistics and long range
that I do not have tunnel vision (Please DO NOT take that wrong)
I have been hunting for about 40 years and have always just used factory rounds.
For many reasons I have started to change the way I hunt and the cost of Ammo has made me become a loader and researcher of HOW and WHY.
I keep reading where people are not happy unless they have a pass thru shot so they can follow a blood trail.
I have track many blood trails (good and Bad) and it is not something that I really want to do when I can have a Bullet that expends ALL of it energy into the animal rather than the hillside behind it.
Energy= shock and trauma (JELLO Organs) causing close to instant death.
Why would you want to trail a wounded animal till it bleeds out like an arrow shot when you can SLAM him to the ground?
Please, I am not trying to get a fire going here, just trying to justifie it all
in my newbie, unpolluted mind.
