Re: deer bullets

Hi Bear2.


A good friend of mine hunt deer with is 243 almost al the time and e start to load for it 2 year a go. The 100gr partion was is chose. Can garenti you that it will do it. One of is shot was perfect center in the lung and we found bone fragment in the liver. And if you have to go mose hunting it will do it if you keepit close.

Re: deer bullets

Yes, V-Maxs are not good at all for big game. There has been some 7mm V-max used on muleys and it only left an open wound and still got away. For sure it lived but if the wound gets infected then that buck will die.

I'm a Vld guy that would use 95 or 105 for deer. They are excellent for penetration upon entrance then expands violently so pass through is not consistent is generally what Vlds do.

Besides your V-maxs, I don't know enough about the other bullets to make a statement on it except that 105 A-max is an excellent choice for beyond 1000 yards target shooting for the 6mm class.

Re: deer bullets

Original Post , Suggest you use them for predator hunts. Deer need a more substantial load and structure of the bullet as indicated by previous posts. I personally stay away from ballistic tip bullets for deer. Sierra, Hornady, Speer, Barnes, Remington Core Loc, Nosler partitions all have great deer getting expansion and accuracy.

My .o2 cents

Re: deer bullets

Nosler ballistic tip are just like Hornady sst(super shock tip) right? Then nosler accubond and hornady interbond are also close in performance. The bonded bullets are harder than the tip bullets.

Re: deer bullets

theodore, you are correct. I still stay away from ballistic tip bullets. It is not that they are not good , accurate, penetrating?? a little bit questioned . Bonded bullets are great as are Barnes.etc. There are a lot of bullets that will perform in a 1st class way and others that dispatch and destroy a lot of meat uselessly. They also tend to splatter and not penetrate another tracking job. Just what you needed at the end of a long day in the stand or a long way from the cabin. Premium bullets are available without the tipped version, except barnes( they are still solid brass with petals) E tipped bullets. Even with a 243 there are a lot of bullets available that have retention of the original weight for the most part. Good Luck
