Re: Is this common? SMK

No offense and I am not flaming you. I understand I wasnt there! I have to say you should wait for a more broadside shot! That way your bullet doesnt have so much to try and penetrate through. If he was quartering so much that you only had a shot through the flank it doesnt suprise me that there wasnt much blood. Guts dont bleed very much and the vitals were a long way from the hole. If you are going to be shooting out to 400 yards you have to be patient. So be patient at 75 too! Just an observation. I know I wasnt there and I am reacting to what I read and how it read to me!!!!

    With all due respect I have extensive experience with the SMK's 30 cal and larger on game and also have a level of access to people who you do not and your statement is not correct in itís entirety and I will leave it at that.

    Thanks Boss Hoss for the informative info, maybe I will keep shooting the SMK and try it out on a bunch of hogs and a few more deer, I was shocked with the performance of my bullet given the speed and closeness of the shot. How do you like the 155 SMK, I think it is the Palma right? I really am planning to end up shooting the 190grainers eventually. But I really like the confidence in my rifle for the accuracy the 150 gives me.

    But thank you guys for all the feedback and answers!

    Boss,

    That was some of the most interesting data anyone has provided here for some time. Thanks for posting it. I found it fascinating.
