I shot 2 deer with my .50 caliber encore using 180-grain XTP's and neither one exited. Luckily they dropped within sight but there was no blood trail because of it. This year I've switched to 250-grain PTX's which are basically an XTP with a blunt polymer tip. They shoot great and pattern well out of mine with 100 grains of Triple 7 (2 50-grain pellets) but don't know yet how they perform on deer. Hopefully very similar to the 240-grain XTP's I used to shoot out of a Knight.

Bigger is-in most cases better in this sport!

You are paying the same price for the 180s versus the 300 grains.

So why not get your money's worth & improve your chances for a harvest with a bigger bullet - since most ML harvests are from shots within 75 yards?

After-all, we only get one shot in this fine sport - that is.... before going thru all the rigger-marole of re-loading for a 2nd shot.

Buy the 300s & you can thank me later! :p

Recoil-sensitive?
Get a slip-on Sims Limbsaver recoil pad for $29.95. Need help finding one online?.... just ask here.

Well forget the recoil-sensitivity concerns -- I just re-read your post & your choice to use 110 gr. of powder.

Please do not describe yourself in this fashion. Seek medical help for a more truthful opinion.

You already lowered yourself by now including "kill" in your thread. That word was not included before.

When I suggested a larger bullet, it was because the 180 bullet DID NOT KILL.

That's why I suggested the larger bullet varieties.

When you seek-out that doctor like I suggested, ask him to check the part of your brain that determines your inability to even know/remember what exactly you wrote in your first post.

Geeeessssshh!!!
I'm done here.... no sense in carrying-on/helping-out the clueless.
