Since the OP lost two deer with a bow I guess this just adds to the list of "lost deer threads" that he's unhappy about?

I too shoot the 150 gr silvertip. Great load, been shooting it for about 30-years and have never had a reason to change. Use it on everything from elk on down.

And ti doesn't matter how many deer he has shot rafi, I completely agree with his post. I posted just about the same thing in a different thread.

if the deer runs after being shot with ballistic tip you most likely wont have a blood trail to follow. if the round shatters on bone at impact, the animal will probably die but it will run and very hard to blood trail with no blood.
went to texas in 99 and the guy told me to stop using them for this reason. took me till 2008 to learn the hard way.

I have to disagree. The Winchester supreme ballistic silvertips are flat out nasty on deer. I shoot them out of my 7 mag, and if they don't drop, then there is a blood trail that Ray Charles could follow. If you eat the front shoulders on a deer, then these shells aren't for you. I know several others who shoot the same ammo and never have problems.

How in the heck do we go from bowhunting to a couple of pages of "what's the best bullet to use".... LOL

It's a different beast when comparing shooting a deer with a bow vs a rifle. Try shooting one in the shoulder with a bow and tell me how that works for you or how far the deer will go.... \:\)

No matter what you shoot, it's about shot placement.... \:\)
