    Hey guys I was wandering if any of y'all used the 115 gr D-tacs on deer sized game. Did they perform well or not. My velocity is a touch over 2800 fps at 10' from the muzzle.


    Thanks,
    Nathan

    Bueller.......Bueller.........anyone...........anyone.

    Surely somone has shot this bullet at something other than a piece paper. I think I read somewhere that Sierra makes them.

    if this helps out her goes.to me they look alot like a VLD bullet.with that said I would shoot them at a deer.heck alot of guys even me shoout the SMK at deer.but have come to love the A-max in my 30 cals.and they are just like a NBT to me other than they have a softer jacket.when the NBT has a little harder jacket.so you might just want to try the A-max.but understand the 10gn difference.

    and yes Sierra makes them.

    Thanks man, I might have to shoot JUDD a pm he is shooting them acouple of hundred fps faster but I'm sure he's shot a few ground hogs with em. I'll give the thread a little longer maybe JUDD will see it and give his results with it.

    My brother (Sendero_Man on LRH) uses them in a 243AI he has with great results. Check this out for visual proof on Wyoming antelope:

    YouTube - 2008 Antelope Hunt with my son.

    Shot was 507 yards, muzzle velocity of just under 3200 fps.

    The 115 Bergers work very well on antelope, eastern whitetail and hogs. Do not know about the DTACS.
