Re: Barnes TTSX 180g report
I'm not going to flame you at all! Damn fine muley!!
So, your point of entry was BEHIND the shoulder on a deer slightly quartering TO you. There in lies a good cause of what happened.
When a game animal is quartering to, even if slightly, it is my opinion that aiming behind the shoulder is no longer a place for good bullet placement. I'm aiming towards the front of the shoulder or even in front of it, just the opposite of a quartering away shot.
Try that next time you have the opportunity and see what happens. Quartering to shots are among my favorites with a rifle as the game usually drops on the spot.
