140 AB is overkill for a deer? Please tell me you are joking.

Just saying you dont need em for deer, never lost a deer with my 85gr TSX 243, my 120gr bst ouf of my 2506 kills em dead, 140gr accubond is great on deer but more adequate for elk and bear, all Iam saying

Re: 120gr BT's for Deer?

I shot a yearling a few years ago with this exact combo.120 bt from a 280. Bullet exploded on shoulder blade never penetrated to the vitals. Tracked for 2 miles, dad put a another round in it.

I can't imagine shooting a mature buck with this bullet.

Although from they sounds of it this may have been a fluke.
