    I tried the speer deep curl 150gr in my 270 win this hunting season and got a whitetail buck. It was not a challenging shot, or long range..just about anything would have worked at 100 yards when this buck was shot. The deer was shot through both lungs a little on the high side. Judging by the modest exit hole, (which was about big enough for two fingers) I see it as having performed as advertised as a controlled expansion and good peneration bullet. All in all, I would use it again and especially for larger species to see how it holds up. Sorry, no pictures.
