Re: 120gr BT's for Deer?

Well,I just fired a group this morning with 120gr Hornadys that was fantastic. 3 in a bug hole nd a wide flyer that was most likely the opperator. All from a semi custom 284 Winchester long action on a trued 700 Remington. 24" Shilen stainless pipe,B&C Medalist, Holland lug and Leupold 6X-18X. The charge was 50.5gr of 4320 in a Winny case and Fed primer. I don't have the pic in this computer so I'll have to post it later. This rifle was built around the 150/160gr bullets. With the base of a 150gr nosler flush with the base of the neck you are in love with the lands. I was VERY surprised these shorter slugs shot so durn good. If I make it pronghorn hunting anytime soon this will e the combination.

I would have no problen using a 120gr on a Deer.
They are not Elk or Moose. most of us go for the lungs, it will turn the lungs into Jello.
Use it and don't worry, it will do the trick.

If you wont to know the damage a 120gr can do to a deer, shoot a wet phone book at 100 yards. than shoot a 2x4 at 100 and a 4x4 at 100. there is your answer.
