Re: light bullets in 308 win

I've shot one whitetail at a ranged 340yds with it and he ran about 25yds and dropped dead. ...the bullet entered behind the shoulder and blew up inside(no exit). His heart andlungs were pretty much jelly

Great report! I shot a muley at 34 yards last year ( 135gr SMK from my 270 WSM) - he ran 25 feet and dropped. Hit same place. Lungs complete Jelly - heart intact. I was thinking it was the high velocity/close range.

I picked up some 110 gr .308 barnes solids (for my .308 and 300 RUMs). I'll be testing them and 125gr BT, 135gr bergers. Light bullets are fun to shoot but the oposite of what's needed for long range hunting.
