On Saturday regular deer season opened, so I was out on the tree-stand after 30 minutes I spotted nice buck about 150 yards away heading towards me. This time I used rifle which I custom build from Savage 111 action, Riflebasix trigger and Criterion barrel chambered in 260 Rem. For this hunt I loaded 120 gr Sierra Pro-Hunter bullets on top of 45 gr RL-17, basically 2980 fps. So I hesitated to take a shot through thick brush and since buck was heading towards me I just waited for a clean shot, which took place 40 yards from a tree-stand, that buck never took another step and felt on the same spot, the bullet hit 4th rib on the right side, but there were no exit.
that bullet went through both lungs and it was nothing but gooey left, then it destroyed humerus junction with shoulder bone, then 5" up from it I found bullet jacket, probably half of it on the inside of the shoulder blade.
So had anyone used this bullets and what are your experiences with them?
