Bowd shoots a 308. if you don't actually hit the deer, there is no meat damage what-so-ever \:D you don't get to eat it but no meat is damaged.

I hunt with a T/C Encore sporten a custom 308 Bull Barrel from BullBerry Barrel Works in Hurricane Utah. It's topped off with a Leupold 3X9X40 VXII. I use 150gr. Winchester Super X power points and have taken several deer with this combo. I can shot groups at 100 yards, love my 308

I use handloads in my .308 Win. 150 grain Sierra Pro-Hunter over 43.2 grains of IMR 3031. They're flat based bullets which some say tends to remain in tact better than boat tails.
