HA! Can't wait to ask her about that!

I shoot 150 grn Remington Corelokts and love the results. Just a nice double-the diameter exit hole, good blood trail, and dead deer.

First year with the 308 and I'm shooting 150 grain Hornady boat tail soft points (BTSP). Work good for me.

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

You have a good eye, that is the exact same scope.
The rifle is a Remington 700 5R, 20" threaded barrel, Seekins base and rings.

Maybe the deer don't know I've changed from MZ! Watched a young 4pt in the crosshairs last night from this same spot.

Yep, 150 grn Remington Core Lokts have performed very well on dozens over the years!

Quite a jump from hunting with a bow earlier Sun morning, huh? \:\)

The field is really long and narrow, funky winds at the base of a big ravine. I get busted there all the time.
This rifle is intended for one deer, and one deer only. A crop earred doe that has outwitted me going on 3 years now. She is old and very smart, but distance may be my friend this year.

I knew he would rat me out.
I use the same bullets you do. Complete tactical failure keeps all meat intact but can cause severe fit pitching in the shooter.....especially the second time. \:\)
