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.

If you don't mind, what's the specs on that rifle/Scope? Scope looks like my Weaver 3-15x50 EMDR.
