Well I shot a very big doe this evening at 4:05 she walked out onto the power lines at 320 yards away. I aimed for her front shoulder and squeezed off the shot. She bolted across the power lines, I walk to where I shot her and once again no darn blood or hair. So I start walking the direction she ran with my rifle ready. After slowly walking about 100 yards from where I shot her I stop and scanning the woods for a white belly. Nothing than I happen to look up the hill and 20 feet from me underneath a cedar tree there she was laying and looking at me so I finished her off with a neck shot. She field dressed at 140 lbs. making her one of my biggest does ever.

I shooting a 25-06 with Hornady SST bullets 117 gain and again no exit hole. The shoulder was once again jelly. So after this year I'm done with these SST ballistic tips and going back to Hornady InterLock bullets.

At 320, the bullet has slowed enough that it shouldnít just detonate like a lot of the SST bullets will do at closer ranges. Getting clear through on a shoulder shot might be an iffy proposition but not entirely impossible. When distance is concerned (and not that 320 is great distance), thereís a pile of factors that will determine overall performance. Iíve shot deer with a pile of different 25 caliber bullets over the years ranging from 70-120 grains. Pretty much settled on the 100 grain weights and havenít a real reason to switch. Inside 200, most will just blow to pieces leaving no exit but leaving a very dead deer. Beyond that, the bullet will often times be found on the opposite side of the deer (when impacting a shoulder with a soft point) and itíll run a short distance. Generally no more than 40 yards but blood trails are going to be sparse. I believe your transition back to the interlock is going to give you very similar results as to what youíre already getting based on the shot you described. The interlock and SST are essentially the same bullet with a plastic tip and no cannelure. Regardless, good luck in whatever you do and I hope that you find what youíre seeking.


I keep desperately hoping that one day someone will call me "Sir" without adding "please calm down" or "you're causing a scene."
