I agree terminal performance is just as important as accuracy. These deer I shoot have some thick skin, once you cut one open there is tons of jelly and blood(terminal damage) but they barely bleed on the hoof even with a perfect shot and 2 holes. Best to see where they fall and not have to track. I want to say some fragmentation, at least 50% weight retention, would be ok especially at closer ranges but I’d rather have a fat mushroom and an entrance/exit holeI hunted with a 26 Nosler - not same but similar cartridge - in Wyoming. I chose the Barnes 127LRX because I wanted the bullet to expand but penetrate. We have engaged deer/antelope in Wyoming at 75 yards to 400 yards. I harvested a deer at 300+ with the 127LRX and it was DRT with complete penetration. I recently purchased Swift Scirocco II 130 and some Hammer 124 to also try in the 26 Nosler. I believe that the terminal performance characteristics are extremely important when selecting the projectile along with the in flight ballistics. Do you want projectile to hold together and penetrate or do you prefer maximum fragmentation?
