    PTG V brake

    They will expire in short order when shot broadside thru both lungs. I've used the 225gr Eld-M.

    Enough people have used the 208 amax for hunting for years and its my understanding that the eldm is basically the a max. I am gonna use the 225 eldm this year and am interested to see how it does. I would go for it if ibwere you.
