    My oldest Brother is going to SD for Mule Deer and Antelope, will the 150 gr bullets be ok
    without doing major distruction to the chest areas?

    Plenty of gun. Damage to animal is based on where you hit him. Shoulder shot will mess up a lot where heart lung shot will work fine.

    Which bullet is he shooting? Any 150 will work well on the Mule Deer out of the 7 but Antelope aren't very big or heavy boned at all so I'd stick to a non-bonded type bullet such as the Hornady SST or others unless he's going to shoot it through the shoulders. Just my 2 cents.
