I got a bullet recovered tonight shot a doe at about 100 yards, broad side, good hit, it took out most of the pluming out above the heart. She did not go anywhere dropped right where she was. I found the bullet on the opposite side under the skin.  The bullets  weight was 73.8 grains. Same as before took her with a rock river LAR 8. The load is 43.0 grains of h 4895 with a 165 gn hornady sst.  My hunting buddy’s’ daughter took a doe the other day with a 243 using Hornady’s  reduced load with the sst bullet he said the deer made it about 25 yards. These bullets are dropping the deer quickly.
