All right, kids.
If you all remember, I hit a deer last year and never recovered it. I shot the deer through thick cover with my .30-06. The bullet I used was a remmington 165 grain accutip.
I have heard since then, that people have had not so great luck with the plastic tipped bullets, that sometimes you get the effect of a FMJ, with a complete pass-thru.
I have stopped using the accutips, and gone back to hornadays in 165 grain SST.
We don't get many chances here in NH for deer. I would rather use a bullet that is destructive on exit, and will kill a deer effectively.
At the range, the hornadays are lethaly accurate. However, this does'nt ammount to a hill of beans when the bullet does'nt do it's job.
After this protracted question I guess all I want to know is this: does anyone use the Hornaday SST with any luck on deer.
You can't kill'em sittin' on the couch!
