Re: Help: Ammo for my new 7mmRM Tikka T3 Lite
I've used the ballistic tip bullets in the 7mm rem mag on whitetails. I've shot a few with them...basically, never again.
They fragment on impact. One deer I shot broad side and he literally had a 4 inch wide hole through him. Another I jumped and he was trotting away from me, got him in the right ham and destroyed a lot of meat. Not only that, but down he went, and still quite alive. The bullet blew up...fragmented. There was nothing left of the bullet to hit vitals. Out came the Glock to finish that.
Once I saw what the ballistic tip did on the 2nd example I decided I'd never use them for deer again.
After that I switched to fail safes, which are no longer made. I think the Accubond replaced them? I might try them myself.
