glad it is working for you.

the 110 hornady soft points worked better for me but they just finally came back in stock last week

I am trying a 150gr Deer season xp round this year it is another polymer tipped bullet that is supposed to be for deer , I shoot the 300 so little I figured components being what they are lately I would try a box 2 of factory ammo and see


They get 18 to 23 inches of penetration from what I have seen. I have had some exit some have not. I recovered one that shattered the shoulder clipped the lungs and heard went through the diagram and liver and was laying on top of the stomach when I opened it up. Now there was not much left of it, no jacket just some lead flattened out almost like it had hit a steel plate. It did it's job.

My 12 year old shot 2 down in KY with it 3 years ago on the same day facing him. The first a young one folded hit top of heart one lung and snaped the spine. The 2nd was a large doe and her heart was split nearly clean in half the bullet continued up and at a slight angle hitting the back of one lung going through the diafram and out just behind the liver . She made it 30 yards. We were on the ground in aground bind and they were coming up hill slightly.

It's a balancing act with the blackout speed and bullet preformance . I error non the side of more expansion and possibly not an exit vs getting an exit and maybe not any expansion. I may be wrong in that but it's worked with 100% recovery so far. My cousin had the same set up he built right after I did and went with heavier bullets. He lost one or two and recovered one bullet from a nice buck shot facing him in the back leg. The deer dropped but the bullet had rifling marks and could have been loaded again and shot.

I think 110- 130 soft points would be a good choice especially with longer barrel on the heavier ones.

I was going to try Speer hot core 130s becuse they were cheap but worried they may not expand as well as I wanted and never did.

Good job ! Enjoy every moment you have with them boys ! As for them writing down their kills I can believe that. I did it when I was their age with squirrels and foxes . Didn’t have deer here in the early 1970’s Heck it made the paper if someone saw a deer People talked for weeks if a deer track was found !
You should’ve said “ pushing “ 11 deer killed!! Lol

I couldn't even do a good job wiping my butt at 7 years old...never mind shooting a deer by myself


It is better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.

Good work! Angles are hard for kids. My 8yr old is 2 for 2 so far using his .243 and SST’s. For some reason those bullets exit does and bucks out of that rifle. Now out of a .308 or 7mm/08 there’s an entrance wound only. It kills the deer and they normally drop within sight, but if they don’t it’s tough tracking.

Green County I recovered that v max under the skin. I didn't weight it but it's a nice mushroom less so on the side it turned around and faces backyards on and the base has a smear/ dent where it hit something as it turned.
It did loose its jacket. I can send you pictures if you pm me your # or email

Providence Farm,

A lot of folk's kids can't drive any vehicle, even at 18 years old......and sure can't be trusted with a firearm.

Good on you for starting 'em young.!!!!

My youngest changed the tire on our gator for my wife when I was away for work when he was 7. This year he did most of the work putting the new motor into that gator after it threw a rod. I picked the old one out and placed the new one in becuse it was to heavy for him. But he did the rest with me walking him through it.

I try to take th time and make sure they are hands on. That the first time we got a 4 h project done so far ahead of time.

Thanks, for the compliment. They don't come with a manual I often hope I dome screw them up. I figure to do my best to teach them to thin, be respectful , and responsible. I won't always be there and they need to be able to thrive when I'm gone without me.
