Re: 120gr BT's for Deer?
I don't know which one I been using, but I've seen a couple of dozen whitetails hit with neck shots, chest shots, lung shots, etc. The only one that didn't have an exit wound was hit in the chest with a frontal shot, and pieces of the bullet lodged in the pelvis after wrecking everything in between.
I have no experience with them on game bigger than whitetails. WyoElk2Hunt has got that covered. My next step up now is a .340 Wby with 250gr Nosler Partitions. Used to be a .30 x .378 Roy with 200gr Accubonds.
If the 120gr Ballistic Tips didn't perform, I and all my family would have stopped using them years ago. I don't load any other bullet in our 7-08's.
Good hunting, Tom
